The internationally acclaimed account of Robyn Davidson's epic journey across seventeen thousand miles of Australian desert and bush with four camels and a dog. 'A strong, salty fresh book by an original and individual young woman ...This will rank among the best of the books of exploration and travel and, like them, is a record of self-discovery and self-proving' Doris Lessing 'As eccentric, undisciplined, flashily brilliant and pig-headed as its author ...Ms Davidson is a born writer, her book deeply moving' Daily Telegraph 'An absorbing record of human endeavour and courage, a vivid picture of an extraordinary country by a perspective and sensitive observer, and the story of an inner journey, of "shedding burdens" ' Sydney Morning Herald 'It gets to the heart of landscape and solitude and becomes a venture to the interior of more than one dimension as its author approaches the hinterland of her own thorny psyche' Observer
Very Good/Good. Now a major motion picture starring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver 'I exper ienced that sinking feeling you get when you know you have conned yourself into doing something difficult and there's no going back. ' So begins Robyn Davidson's perilous journey across 1, 700 miles of hostile Australian desert to the sea with only four camels and a dog for company. Enduring swelterin g heat, fending off poisonous snakes and lecherous men, chasing her camels when they get skittish and nursing them when they are injured, Davidson eme rges as an extraordinarily courageous heroine driven by a love of Australia 's landscape, an empathy for its indigenous people, and a willingness to ca st away the trappings of her former identity. Tracks is the compelling, can did story of her odyssey of discovery and transformation.
