Victoria’s April Recommendation

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed

A powerful and moving memoir of one woman who, after experiencing her mother’s death and a painful divorce, decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and to do it alone.  With no real experience in long distance hiking, Strayed takes on the 1,100 mile journey as as last ditch attempt to piece together a broken life.  This has been described as “A powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe—and built her back up again”.  This would appeal to readers of inspirational literature, travel writing, and memoirs.
