Modern hermit

Walking home this afternoon I was tempted into the local bookstore. Found "Cave in the Snow" about a women who lived in a cave in the mountains for years. I knew that I'd heard of her before. Later I realized that I must have seen a newspaper article about her in 1988 when she came out of her solitude.

Fascinating book, I'm glad it came into my life. I've always remembered and wondered about her, how she survived, what motivated her.

  1. I love stories of people like this...who go off alone and then write about what they learn.
