#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
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.

I devoured this book. I really could not put it down. We all travel, hike and adventure for different reasons but so many of us find that wandering, hiking and traveling help us to find ourselves. It helps us find a sense of hope or a new joy in living. It helps us grieve and understand who we are. This is a beautiful story of a woman who hikes the Pacific Crest Trail by herself with little to no previous hiking experience. If you haven’t read it yet I highly recommend it.
