Inside Tracks

Read the book, watch the film! A recently released major motion picture brings to life Robyn Davidson’s classic travelogue Tracks, the story of a young woman’s epic journey by camel across the formidable Australian Outback. Davidson arrived in the Outback with a dog, a little cash, and she managed to find and train some camels (feral in Australian desert since the 19th century) to carry her on her journey. Her absorbing account of her almost 2,000 mile trek across the desert is a tale of true adventure shot through with a feel for the landscape and empathy for the Aboriginal people she meets along the way.
