Book Beginnings: Tracks

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

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.

I loved WILD by Cheryl Strayed, so this sounds like a book I'd enjoy too. The opening definitely makes me want to keep reading.
My Friday post features DEAR SUGAR.
