Robyn Davidson verwirklicht mit siebenundzwanzig Jahren einen scheinbar verrückten Traum: die australische Wüste zu durchqueren, begleitet von vier wilden Kamelen und einem Hund. Neun Monate wird es dauern, bis sie schließlich den Indischen Ozean erreicht. Neun Monate in der Wildnis, umgeben von unerträglicher Hitze, giftigen Tieren und einer Landschaft, der die Menschen gleichgültig sind. Doch im Verlauf der Reise gelingt es Robyn, ihr altes Leben mehr und mehr hinter sich zu lassen. Jenseits der Zivilisation und auf sich allein gestellt erkennt sie, was sie wirklich zum Glücklichsein braucht – bis die Begegnung mit dem Fotografen Rick sie aus der frisch gewonnenen Balance zu bringen droht ... «Eines der schönsten Bücher über das Entdecken und das Reisen.» (Doris Lessing) «Leuchtend und lebendig... Davidson ist eine wahre Abenteurerin und eine geborene Schriftstellerin.» (New Yorker) «Kein Buch für Pauschal-Touristen, auch keins für Latzhosen-Feministinnen. Aber unbedingt eines für Menschen, die unruhig geblieben sind.» (Die Zeit) «Eine packende Geschichte über Herausforderung und Mut, ein farbenprächtiges Bild Australiens, gezeichnet von einer scharfsinnigen und empfindsamen Beobachterin – und die Geschichte einer inneren Reise.» (Sydney Morning Herald)

The first women archaeologists were Victorian era adventurers who felt most at home when farthest from it. Canvas tents were their domains, hot Middle Eastern deserts their gardens of inquiry and labor. Thanks to them, prevailing ideas about feminine nature — soft, nurturing, submissive — were upended. Ladies of the Field tells the story of seven remarkable women, each a pioneering archaeologist, each headstrong, smart, and courageous, who burst into what was then a very young science. Amanda Adams takes us with them as they hack away at underbrush under a blazing sun, battle swarms of biting bugs, travel on camelback for weeks on end, and feel the excitement of unearthing history at an archaeological site. Adams also reveals the dreams of these extraordinary women, their love of the field, their passion for holding the past in their hands, their fascination with human origins, and their utter disregard for convention.
