Abstract:
This book is about 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. Robyn's 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.
