I love books about survival and triumph under difficult circumstances, especially since I'm a bit of a coward myself. I know better than to attempt an 1,100-mile trek through mountains and deserts on foot. But lucky for me, Cheryl Strayed had no such qualms when she decided to hike the Pacific Crest Trail and find the answers to her life's problems. She wrote about the experience in her memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Alfred A. Knopf, 2012).
"One of the most original, heartbreaking, and beautiful American memoirs in years." --Michael Shaub, NPR Books
"[A] vivid, touching, and ultimately inspiring account of a life unraveling, and of the journey that put it back together." --The Wall Street Journal
"An addictive, gorgeous book." --The Boston Globe
