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.

4.0 Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
This book touched me a lot. The author is very straightforward about everything. She has a difficult time and makes her way through it, but it isn't like it was so hard until she conquered it into honey and rainbows. She struggles the whole book. She acknowledges the good and bad parts of hersel...

She is a girl with everything before her, all sorts of potential. But when her mother dies she just goes into an unexplained self-destructive spiral. She ruin...
