Description

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

    This book had an excellent chance of making my all time favorites list—I’m a woman, I’m a hiker and I’ve gone through my own personal journey in the last decade. Although I’m better for having read it, it didn’t.

    I blame it on a less-than-desired emotional connection. The only time I felt like Cheryl really opened herself up and showed us her rawest self was during several scenes where she mourns her mother. She had me in each of these scenes. The rest, not enough to really grab me very tightly.

    I loved reading about her physical and emotional journey. I’m really glad she wrote—and I read—the book.
