Ffyona Campbell was thirteen when she fiurst dreamed of walking around the world. At sixteen she walked from John O'Groat's to Land's End; at eighteen she walked from New York to Los Angeles; at twentty-one she broke the men's world speed record by walking 3,200 miles from Sydney to Perth in ninety-five days. In April 1991 she began her monumental 10,000 mile trek from Cape Town to Tangiers, the penultimate leg in her round-the world walk. Related with rare frankness and intimacy, this is the story of a wilfully independent young woman's journey across Australia. Traversing some of the toughest country in the world, she endures dehydration, tarmac-melting heat, and blisters that outnumber the flies. Her money runs out and her relationship with her back-up driver alternately sustains and devastates her. Not only a compelling adventure, FEET OF CLAY is the realisation of a dream....
