Now a major motion picture starring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver
'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.

Thought this book was a great read about fulfilling dreams despite the odds being against you.
An exceptional read!
My husband asked me 'why' did she do 'it'. I refused to answer him and suggested that the only way to find an answer would be to read the book.
I was engrossed, enthralled, enchanted, moved through laughter, tears and a full range of emotions, along with being stimulated to think and question.
Thank you Robyn, for your honesty, insights, integrity and for sharing your story.
