Publisher 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.

Interesting personal journey woven through a physical one.

Wild is a fast read that has good pacing and compelling stories stitched through the background of the PCT. The family tales and personal challenges provide the motivation both for the protagonist, but also the reader, as it serves to keep you carried along from one chapter to the next. Ultimately the end of the journey fell a bit flat without a truly satisfying close to what Strayer wrestles with through the book. That said, it’s a unique perspective and an entertaining account of real events well told.

The things we learn about ourselves on the trail.

Great book about a fellow Minnesotan about finding a new chapter in life and overcoming the obstacles in our way.
