Description
"I experienced that sinking feeling you get when you know you have conned yourself into doing something difficult and there's no going back." From this seemingly inauspicious beginning, Robyn Davidson's "vivid and vivacious" travel book (The New Yorker) chronicles her remarkable 1977 trek across 1700 miles of Australian desert with only four camels and a dog for company, and inspired the 2013 film of the same name starring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver. Driven by a love of Australia's landscape, an empathy for its indigenous people, and a willingness to cast away the trappings of her former life, Davidson is an inspiring and courageous heroine, and emerges from her odyssey transformed.

"Beautiful, thrilling and ferociously brave, Robyn Davidson's timeless story of her astonishing journey gripped me from the first page to the last. Tracks is an unforgettably powerful book."—Cheryl Strayed

"The integrity of this articulate and impassioned account is evident in the fact that Robyn Davidson does not find glib solutions to inner or outer conflicts. Like her camel companions, she seems temperamental, insatiable, and slightly crazy, but also determined, direct, vulnerable, and splendid."—500 Great Books by Women
