In the wake of her mother’s death and with her marriage
destroyed, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. Four years later, feeling
she had nothing more to lose, she decided to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. With no experience or training, she would
hike the more than a thousand mile trail from the Mojave Desert through
California and Oregon to Washington State alone. Told with suspense, warmth and
humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young
woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that challenged,
strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
