Synopsis

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

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.

Oprah's Book Club 2.0 selection: This special eBook edition of Cheryl Strayed’s national best seller, Wild, features exclusive content, including Oprah’s personal notes highlighted within the text, and a reading group guide.

    LOVE

    I jumped right in and fell in love with Strayed from the get-go. Her writing is easy to read, and the flashbacks to her life really resonated with me why she would hike the PCT. Going to read her other books now. SO GOOD!

    Great Book..!

    'Wild' is a beautifully descriptive story about loss, pain, nearly giving up, and pushing on. I loved every moment of this book and am just blown away by the author's audacity and perseverance to achieve her goal. I personally will never be able to go three months in the wild,with a pack so heavy in my back, blistered feet, bleeding and sore, filthy, hungry and lonely. I couldn't believe she kept going, hiked 1100 miles solo on the PCT enduring scorching temperatures on the desert or frigid weather from the High Sierra Mountains, and wild animals but despite all that and the mental and physical tiredness she never gave up and accomplished her soul finding with every step she took in her journey. The bravery and willpower flowed from the pages of this book touched me deeply. It was a great book to read.

    GREAT SPIRIT. Slow read

    I really enjoyed this story/Autobiography from Cheryl Strayed. The story about a girl age 26 who is failing in every aspect of her life and is inspired by a book to go hike the PCT (5,000 mile trail). I loves how it showed her struggle because of lack of preparation for the hike, and I commend her for pushing her body to not give up (with raw skin and missing toenails) a true soul searching experience. I gave this book a 4 star because I did enjoy the story, however I found it very slow to get through. I had no problem putting the book down and taking some time to pick it back up. I was almost counting how many chapters I had left to get through. All in all good story
