From Alice to ocean : alone across the Outback by Robyn Davidson( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1977, Robyn Davidson set out with four camels and a dog to cross the deserts of Western Australia--1700 miles from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean. Her sponsor, National Geographic, arranged for photographer Rick Smolan to meet her at various locations along the way. Davidson's riveting account of her journey, Tracks, won awards and became a bestseller. Here, Smolan presents his color photographs alongside excerpts from Tracks. It is a rewarding combination that dramatizes the hardships Davidson encountered and the stark beauty of a hostile landscape. Smolen, creator of the Day in the Life series, photographed tourists, aborigines, scenery and Davidson with her animals--riding, resting, playing. His images make a great adventure even more memorable
No fixed address : nomads and the fate of the planet by Robyn Davidson( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a time of environmental peril, Davidson argues that the nomadic way with nature offers valuable lessons. Cosmologies such as the Aboriginal Dreaming encode irreplaceable knowledge of the natural world, and nomadic cultures emphasise qualities of tolerance, adaptability and human interconnectedness. She also explores a notable paradox: that even as classical nomadism is disappearing, hypermobility has become the hallmark of modern life. For the privileged, there is an almost un-restricted freedom of movement and an ever-growing culture of transience and virtuality."--Cover

Running wild( Visual )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia is home to some of the world's most interesting animals - from kangaroos to koalas, to deadly spiders and snakes. But did you know it's also home to the largest population of wild camels on Earth? After first arriving on our shores in 1860 to assist in the ill-fated Burke and Willis expedition to cross Australia from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria, there was once an estimated one million feral camels running wild across the Australian outback. Narrated by Robyn Davidson, author of Tracks - the story of her remarkable 1,700 mile trek on camelback across the deserts of western Australia - this riveting documentary looks at the history of the camel in our country. From the explorers who brought them here, to the people still working with them today, Running Wild: Australia's Camels examines both the impact of feral camels on our fragile environment and the massive culling operations responsible for thinning the herd

I saw a strange land by Arthur Groom( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While living in Central Australia Arthur Groom fell under the spell of this harsh and fascinating country, captivated by its limitless distances and unbelievable colour. Hermannsburg, the home of artist Albert Namatjira and of other well-known painters, became Groom's headquarters, and from there he made numerous expeditions into wilder and more inaccessible regions. Travelling on foot with an Indigenous guide and a team of camels, Groom explored the Macdonnell and Krichauff ranges, the desert country past the salty Lake Amadeus, Uluru and the Olgas. Based on the notes and photographs he took as he travelled, I Saw a Strange Land is Groom's wonderful record of his extensive journey through the heart of our continent-our 'strange land.'
