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

No fixed address : nomads and the fate of the planet by Robyn Davidson( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 89 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
