The man who survived for 10 years in a NSW forest

Gregory P. Smith had a very turbulent childhood, surrounded by violence and addiction.

At 10 years of age he was sent to live in an orphanage and by 17 he was in jail.

At 30-years-old he decided him and society and him just weren’t for each other, so he went to live in the forest in near total isolation.

He stayed there for 10 years, foraging for food, eating bats and occasionally trading for produce.
