Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
Some of the best adventures are the ones we read about. Cheryl Strayed's Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail is a memoir of a young woman who backpacks the Pacific Crest Trail. What we love the most about this book is that is shows that anyone can become an outdoor enthusiast, even without prior experience.
"At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State — and she would do it alone."
