Goodreads Review of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest TrailWild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There were nights I stayed up until my eyes couldn’t stay open so I could finish this book. While my experiences are not like Cheryl’s there are some I can relate to and if I had read about the PCT at certain points of my life I may have been done the hike as well. I did a marathon once because of a tumultuous experience I felt I needed to get over.

Cheryl has become one of my fav authors over the last few months, I recently read Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar. She really knows how to pull you into a story and really get your attention. As she hikes the PCT Cheryl talks about her hiking boots and all the physical ailments and then in another moment there is a very poetic moment about a fox or spider webs.

A few months back I read A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail about another Trail written by a man. I really enjoyed reading about Cheryl’s solo experience on the trail. The situations and perceptions held mostly by men. I have never hiked the AT or PCT but I do travel overseas solo and have heard many of the same things uttered by men when I’ve told them I am travel solo.

The book is very cathartic and you feel as if You lived it right along with Cheryl.
