Strayed's language is so vivid, sharp and compelling that you feel the heat of the desert, the frigid ice of the High Sierra and the breathtaking power of one remarkable woman finding her way - and herself - one brave step at a time. Source: People
'One of the best books I've read in the last five or ten years... Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it's destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time.' Nick HornbySee all Product description

It is honest funny and very true to life....!
I take my hat off to Cheryl for her endurance and her bravery for undertaking the PCT and also for sharing this work with us all.
I read it around the time the movie came out, but I wanted to read the ebook first, so I purchased it on my kindle. I just couldn't put it down.
I sort of knew the story already, but I was really drawn into Cheryl's events, and I felt as if I was there with her whilst she hiked.
I lived in Oregon for a little bit so when I got to the bit where she's in Portland I felt as if I had gotten back in time too, and I was back in Portland as well.
Would definitely recommend. I suggested this book to my brother as well,and he loved it too. So don't be put off, if you may think this is a book just for women.
Then I read this book.
WOW, the effect on my was incredible, I felt every little last bit of pain along her journey, the pain and the victories and joy too, like they were my own almost. It was so powerful. I really resonated with some of the issues Cheryl had, not that they were the same as mine, but that all pain is universally connected somehow, and I felt a huge release of my own pain through her journey. I cried a lot, and I was so happy for her for her incredible achievements both physically and emotionally and spiritually (although not written in a spiritually moralising kind of way at all). I couldn't put the book down, I fantasised about my own healing trip. What makes it even more brave and incredible is that all this was before the internet, where people have so much more access to advise and blogs and so on. Really loved this book. I'm not saying that you will feel the same release or gain the same strength that I did from this, but either way, this incredible journey is worth hearing about from this brave and very special lady!
