Editorial Reviews

Review

“Robyn Davidson’s report of her travel through the heaven and hell of India is beautiful, tough, and brave. . . . Her story grips and charms.” —Barry Lopez

“[Davidson] may be one of the great adventurers of our time.” —The Boston Globe

“Davidson is as natural a writer as she is an adventurer.” —The New Yorker

“Breathtaking . . . absorbing to even the most sedentary of bookshelf-travelers.” —Publishers Weekly

“As courageous on paper as on desert sands, Davidson will both disturb and exhilarate readers with the acuity of her observations, the sting of her wit, and the candor of her emotions.” —Booklist

“She writes beautifully with humour and understanding and her book is all the more powerful for being unflinchingly honest. Travel writers be warned—this is a tough act to follow.” —India Today

About the Author

Robyn Davidson was born on a cattle property in Queensland, Australia. She went to Sydney in the late sixties, then spent time studying in Brisbane before moving to Alice Springs, where the events of this book begin. Since then, she has traveled extensively, living in London, New York, and India. In the early 1990s, she migrated with and wrote about nomads in northwestern India. She is now based in Melbourne, but spends several months a year in the Indian Himalayas.
