From a letter by Agafya Lykova, a seventy-year-old hermit living in the Siberian province of Khakassia, to Vladimir Pavlovsky, editor in chief of the Krasnoyarsk Worker newspaper, which published the letter online earlier this year. Agafya is the last surviving member of the Lykova family, who moved to the area in 1936 and remained uncontacted until 1978, when a team of geologists came upon their huts. It is unclear how Agafya, who, with the exception of Yerofei Sedov, her one-legged neighbor, lives more than seventy-five miles from other dwellings, managed to post the letter.
