Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail is a memoir by Cheryl Strayed ( an american author ) published in 2012.
This memoir describes Cheryl’s 1 000 miles hike of the Pacific Crest Trail ( it begins in the Mojave Desert, goes through California and Oregon and ends in the state of Washington ). When she was 22 years old her mother passed away after battling a lung cancer, after this her siblings remained distant and, later, she divorced her husband. When she was 27 she thought that she had nothing else to lose so she decided to go on a 1000 miles hike with no previous experience, alone and untrained. She captured, in her book, her thoughts during the whole journey, her physical and mental pains, her challenges and realizations.
After a friend mentionned it to me and said it was a great book, I wanted to see if it was as good as it seemed. And it is really an amazing book that you should read.
