Based on the novel of the same name by Robyn Davidson, the movie Tracks tells the story of a young woman who goes on a 1,700 mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with her four camels and faithful dog.
There have been many attempts to bring Robyn Davidson’s novel to the big screen. Over the years both Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman have been attached to the lead role. Development on the movie adaptation began before lead actress Mia Wasikowska was even born.
The movie Tracks is not to be confused with the movie Wild, starring Reese Witherspoon, which has a similar theme.
