9780679762874: Tracks: A Woman's Solo Trek Across 1700 Miles of Australian Outback

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

Robyn Davidson's opens the memoir of her perilous journey across 1,700 miles of hostile Australian desert to the sea with only four camels and a dog for company with the following words: “I experienced that sinking feeling you get when you know you have conned yourself into doing something difficult and there's no going back."

Enduring sweltering heat, fending off poisonous snakes and lecherous men, chasing her camels when they get skittish and nursing them when they are injured, Davidson emerges as an extraordinarily courageous heroine 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 identity. Tracks is the compelling, candid story of her odyssey of discovery and transformation. 
 
“An unforgettably powerful book.”—Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild
 
Now with a new postscript by Robyn Davidson.

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

"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 across 1,700 miles of hostile Australian desert to the sea with only four camels and a dog for company.

Enduring sweltering heat, fending off poisonous snakes and lecherous men, chasing her camels when they get skittish and nursing them when they are injured, Davidson emerges as an extraordinarily courageous heroine 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 identity. Tracks is the compelling, candid story of her odyssey of discovery and transformation. 

Product Description:

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

A must for fans of Cheryl Strayed's WILD, and a cult classic in its own right, Tracks is the brilliantly written and frequently hilarious account of a young woman's odyssey through the deserts of Australia, with no one but her dog and four camels as companions. Davidson emerges as a heroine who combines extraordinary courage with exquisite sensitivity. One map.

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 1980. soft. Book Condition: New. "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 chronicles her remarkable 1977 trek across 1700 miles of Australian desert—the source for the 2013 film of the same name starring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver—with only four camels and a dog for company. Davidson emerges from her odyssey transformed; 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, she is an inspiring and courageous heroine."Vivid and vivacious. Davidson is as natural a writer as she is an adventurer."—The New Yorker"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 "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 256. Bookseller Inventory # 52289
