At age twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed felt as though she had lost everything. Grieving from the loss of her mother and coping with the dissolution of her marriage, she made an impulsive decision to hike the Pacific Crest Trail—alone. In Wild, Cheryl tells the story of a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
