Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail (Knopf) *Special Book Group Opportunity at 6:00pm
At age twenty-two and reeling from her mother’s death, her destroyed marriage, and bad choices with men and drug abuse, Strayed makes the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven hundred miles of the Pacific Crest Trail—alone. She had never been backpacking before. She had not even tried out her new boots. Her trek was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone. Strayed faces down rattlesnakes and black bears, intense heat and record snowfalls, and both the beauty and intense loneliness of the trail. Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her. "Cheryl Strayed is a courageous, gritty, and deceptively elegant writer."—Pam Houston
