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, bestselling author of Wild
Vivid and vivacious. . . . Davidson is as natural a writer as she is an adventurer.
The New Yorker
Engrossing. . . . Lyrical and salty. . . . Candid. . . . Best in her accounts of her days alone in the desert and what they did to and for her. . . . Her states of mind . . . veer between feelings of being at one with the cosmos and feelings of being utterly crazy.
The New York Times Book Review
Saucy and unsparing. . . . A strong book, the kind that clings to your back after you ve read it.
Every bit as witty as her camels and a first-rate writer besides.
What continues to resonate with readers isRobyn Davidson s honest introspection throughout the journey. It prompts the reader to ask herself, WouldIdo this? and CouldI do this?
A Traveler s Library
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.
