Agafia of Siberia Part 2 of 2
Agafia Lykova was 35 years old when, for the first time in her life, she met a human being who was not a member of her immediate family. Self-exiled in the wilds of Siberia, the Lykova family was so isolated they did not even realise they’d lived through a Second World War. This is the story of Agafia, the youngest Lykov, and the one who would outlive her entire clan. She’s survived famine, bears, predatory men and extreme winters, living entirely on her own terms. Heidi and Becki explore what is ultimately a love story between a woman and the wilderness she calls home.
