Bushwoman
In the Sixties a rumor began to circulate in the New Zealnd back country; a good-looking German sheila had been seen hiking around the bush and mountains, on her own. She'd appeared in the Kaimanawa Ranges, the Urewera country,the Tarawera and several places in the South Island. The rumors persisted into the Seventies. The lone German Woman had been seen at camps and huts from one end of the country to the other, always on her own and always movin' on...

That woman was Sigrid Crump, and this is her remarkable and highly entertaining story. Sigrid's solo travels took her to remote parts of New Zealand's back country, and from North Island bush to the ice of southern winters. Alone for several weeks at a time, she developed physical and mental survival skills and a deep love for this country's wild places. Few people have experienced New Zealnd in quite the same way.

She Married Barry Crump's brother Bill. Sigrid lives in Golden Bay now and survives them both.
