520    Living alone on a remote mountain in the harsh Australian 
       bush would not be every woman's choice. In fact, Sharyn 
       Munro has so often been asked, ‘Why do you live there?' 
       that she decided to write a book as her answer. THE WOMAN 
       ON THE MOUNTAIN is the resulting lyrically written account
       of her journey towards a sustainable and truly rewarding 
       lifestyle in her beloved mountain forests, where she has 
       ‘only' the abundant wildlife for company. That decades-
       long journey was no smooth, planned passage, but a stumble
       over setbacks, propelled by almost accidental decisions. 
       After the ups and downs of relationships, single parenting,
       and an unlikely variety of jobs, at 55 she found herself 
       alone -- in the bush. Unsure whether she could manage the 
       hard work and mechanical demands of a self-sufficient 
       lifestyle, she nevertheless gave it a go -- and mostly 
       succeeded. She has also learnt to live in tune with nature
       on her wildlife refuge, despite the occasional discordant 
       note, helping to repair past damage and trying to do no 
       more. ‘Civilised conservation' she calls it, ‘having your 
       cake and eating it too -- before the wallabies do.' With 
       increasing numbers of people longing for a simpler life, 
       THE WOMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN reveals what can be achieved 
       when vision and passion are combined with a little hard 
       work, a lot of adaptability -- and a dash of humour. Often
       humorous, always candid, sometimes heart-wrenching, THE 
       WOMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN will charm and inform, and inspire 
       all those who have unfulfilled dreams. Sharyn's is also a 
       passionate cry to us to tread more lightly on our planet 
       so that we can leave a better world for future 
       generations. Visit Sharyn's website
