Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
Second in the Raven Staff Favorite Summer Reads List. Cheryl Strayed's memoir WILD is one of the best books I've read this year. Dealing with personal loss and a marriage breakup, she finds her life unraveling. In an attempt to put her life back in order, she decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail alone. Although not an experienced hiker, she does manage to walk 1,100 miles of the trail from California's Mojave Desert to the Oregon border. You find yourself rooting for her as she surveys her blistered feet every night, hoping she won't turn back. This is a raw and emotional book and I loved it! Recommended by Rochelle.
