Jane’s days in the wilderness are terrifying, taking her close to ‘death’s door’.   The first refuge she finds from wandering later proves to include another trap, and so she sets off again.

But she finds it.  Finds her place on this earth.

And so stops wandering.


‘I still felt as a wanderer on the face of the earth.’
