The international bestseller of one woman's solo trek across 1,700 miles of Australian Outback.
'I experienced 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 through some of the harshest spaces of the world. A camel-trek from the heart of Australia, across 17,000 miles of hostile desert, to the sea - with only a dog and four camels for company.
Tracks is Robyn's award-winning account of her adventure. Her story beats a track across bush, rock, sand and dust, across magnificent landscapes and through ancient sacred land, through frustrations, triumphs, joy and despair. And as she treks further and further away from civilisation, and ever closer to the burning 'heart of the world', she realises that this desert will either make her, or break her.
Robyn Davidson was born in 1950 in a small Queensland country town. She spent fifteen years in Brisbane before moving to Sydney and from there to Alice Springs where the events of this book began. She has travelled extensively throughout the world. Desert Places, an account of her travels with Indian nomads, was published in 1996.
