Tracks: A Woman's Solo Trek Across 1700 Miles of Australian Outback by Robyn Davidson
"I arrived in the Alice at five a.m. with a dog, six dollars, and a small suitcase full of inappropriate clothes."
In case you are wondering, "the Alice" is Alice Springs, Australia, nearly dead in the center. Robyn has this crazy idea that she'll capture a couple of wild camels, tame them, and then trek across the desert to the western coast. And apparently she's going to do this with no money.
