Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A cult classic with an ever-growing audience, 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. 16 pages of photos.


Review:

"[Davidson is] every bit as witty as her camels--and a first-rate writer besides."

Doris Lessing

Review:

"Simple blessed survival is certainly a primary concern for Robyn Davidson, the gifted Australian travel writer, throughout the months-long camel journey she recounts in 'Tracks'. She often finds herself dangerously lost in the desert; there's rarely enough water; and she fends off attacks from a variety of ferocious animals. And yet reading her vivid and enthralling memoir you often feel that...the biggest battles Davidson wages are internal....'Tracks' is the hard-scrabble story of one very honest woman's coming-of-age. That the book is so enormously charming and compelling seems like merely an added bonus."

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE When Robyn Davidson first set out to make her journey across the deserts of the Australian Outback, alone but for her dog and four camels, she was called a lunatic, a would-be suicide. But this high-spirited, engrossing book reveals that she is a genuine traveler driven by a love of Australia s landscape, empathy for its indigenous people, and a willingness to cast away the trappings of her former identity. As she endures 130-degree heat and fords swollen rivers, fends off poisonous snakes and lecherous Australian men, chases her camels when they get skittish and nurses them when they are injured, Davidson emerges as a heroine who combines extraordinary courage with exquisite sensitivity.And Tracks is the compelling, candid story of her odyssey of discovery and transformation.
