Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Posted by Linda | 2:59 PM

We all have our own journey, and map our own course accordingly. This book allows the reader a rare view of someone else's life journey unfolding at a young age when taking big risks are an easier decision than they are later in life.

I have rarely felt as moved by someone else's journey as I have this one, perhaps because Stayed's writing is succinct, accessible, but not overly descriptive. As my former college English professor chirped - "Show me, don't tell me!" Strayed does just this, leaving us to live the moments on the trail as if we were her past travelling companion instead of merely a seated reader flipping pages with abandon - immersed in the journey.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. If you have ever left the prescribed path in search of a new life, or have wondered what would come of attempting to venture off in to the unknown in order to heal a painful past, this is the book for you.

I also love the fact that Strayed embarked on this journey as a normal working woman would or could - she is not an East/West coast elite liberal arts college grad who decided to strike off on a 'wild' post college adventure to find herself because of a huge trust fund and a taste for a bohemian lifestyle.

Strayed's journey comes across as true and pure. I for one am glad she made it from darkness to light, and am grateful for the opportunity to read about her amazing life. Thanks Cheryl!
