4.0 out of 5 stars A Pacific Crest Trail Adventure..., January 7, 2012
This review is from: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Cheryl Strayed lost her mother to cancer, and then she 'destroyed' her marriage to a man she loved. She was all alone in the world.
So she decided to do something big...all alone. She spent 100 days hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT)from the Mohave Desert to Washington State. She wasn't as prepared as she should have been, and the trail is very arduous even for the experienced hiker. But in spite of that, she made it.
This book tells the story of her incredible and challenging adventure on the trail. She also incorporates the story of her life and her loss, and the history of the trail.
Her time on the trail helped to heal her from her losses, and she gained the strength to be on her own. (My only complaint is that she shared too many details about her sex life for my taste, but I know I'm in the minority on that.) It was an enjoyable, interesting read, and I would recommend it for those who enjoy hiking, memoirs, and self improvement.

Hi Angela;
I appreciate your review on this book. I think I'd have lost interest with the sadness of the loss of Chery's mother and the destruction of her marriage.

Nope, you're not in the minority, I'm sure. I was some turned off by her frankness about her own libido as well.

Hi Mike...I agree that this isn't a book for everyone, and it was sad in places. Thanks for your support.
Congratulations on your new book coming out. :)

Angela - Could you please send me an email? I'm wondering if you'd be willing to review a new documentary film about the PCT. Thank you! - Shauncarrigan@gmail.com
