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.

Great imagery of the wilderness, struggled to decide if I liked or disliked the main character. Funny in some places, disturbing in others - overall a worthwhile read.
Fantastic book. Recommend to anyone who appreciates good writing and a well-told adventure of a woman finding her way.
Wild, a story about one women's experience on the PCT
A true account of a women who needed to complete this challenge to heal from her mothers all too early death, survive a failed marriage and rid herself of a brush with drugs. Well written and brutally honest especially about her own errors and faults. The characters she meets are because of the relatively short time span involved are not complete in their description. The simplicity of the story is a bit of a downer but the writing makes up for that. It's a simple read that left me interested trying a solo hike but the honesty she displays about feet and sores convinced me take a scenic tour instead.
