Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found by Cheryl Strayed
5.0 out of 5 stars A STAR READ, 6 April 2014
I was attending a showing of 'Project Wild Thing' at Leeds University, when I saw a guy in front of me reading this book. When I saw the title 'WILD' and the single boot, I noted the details and ordered it immediately.

This book is written from the heart - authentic on every page. Let yourself be drawn into Cheryl's healing journey. You will FEEL EVERYTHING as you read. Take Cheryl's walk, through stunning landscapes - outer and inner, as she heals her grief, her loss. As you travel with her, you will feel a renewed resilience in your own journey.

I recommend unreservedly. Order it today!

5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY BRILLIANT, 15 Dec 2013
I am in love with this book and the Story of Inanna! The co authorship of Wolkstein and Kramer works perfectly. This book is wonderfully balanced and will satisfy those who wish to luxuriate in the poetry of Wolksteins' rendering of the story/verse and those who seek the historical background to the discovery of the tablets and Sumerian history. A Classic. Lovely plates too.

3.0 out of 5 stars SOMETHING MISSING, 15 Dec 2013
As a passionate Sunflower lover, I was disappointed with the Sunflower Section, which was not up to date. There was no inclusion of the healing power of Sunflowers at Chernobyl and Fukushima in connection with radiation. I found this a serious omission.

On many days, the book just put me to sleep - very botanical in parts and lacking the passion and enthusiasm in the writing that I was hoping for.
