Description
(Oprah Book Club 2.0 Selection, June 2012; Best Book of 2012: NPR, St. Louis Dispatch, Vogue; Best Nonfiction Book of 2012, Boston Globe) At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything in the wake of her mother's death, as her family scattered and her own marriage fell apart. Four years later, with no experience or training and nothing left to lose, she impulsively set out on a solo hike from the Mojave Desert in southeastern California to the Bridge of the Gods on the southern edge of Washington State—1100 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. In a gripping, fast-moving narrative that sparkles with humor and insight, Wild captures the terrors and pleasures of a young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

"I was reduced, during the book's final third, to puddle-eyed cretinism.... As loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song. It's got a punk spirit and makes an earthy and American sound.... The cumulative welling up I experienced during Wild was partly a response to that too infrequent sight: that of a writer finding her voice, and sustaining it, right in front of your eyes."—NYTimes
