Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Vintage)

Cheryl Strayed
A Best Nonfiction Book of 2012: The Boston Globe, Entertainment WeeklyA Best Book of the Year: NPR, St. Louis Dispatch, VogueAt 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.

Memoir about hiking the Pacific Coast trail.  Liked this tremendously - could relate to many of the hikng issues as we got ready to hike the Grand Canyon this year.  Although I could not relate to her reasons for wanting to attempt this feat,  there is no doubt she was tremendously brave and driven
