Well narrated fun adventure. The reader of this book made this. I would recommend this to all. Everyone dreams of doing a long thru hike, this might be the story that finally makes you do it!
I definitely identified with Cheryl and her struggle. Her accomplishment in both hiking the PCT and writing this awesome book are inspiring to others struggling with grief and life choices. Thank you for this!
She just kept going despite enormous physical and emotional encounters. An honest, believable recounting of a true adventure. What led her to the journey, what she learned about herself, what realizations came to her regarding her own family and friends are unabashedly included. The recounting of fellow hikers, and others who came across her path rings true. Cheryl Strayed gives us her deepest thoughts and is unafraid to reveal her darkest emotions and actions leading to and through to the end of her journey. Mercifully she gives a snippet of how her life went after the journey so we are not left hanging. I related to it all the way.
What an adventure! Although the writer lacked motivation by my God, you could feel his presence throughout the book.
This book is one woman's success story and example to others, no matter what their problems to overcome.
I fell I was doing the walking, very well described. Enjoying the beauty of nature, the present and every moments in your lifetime will bring you to a meaningful and happy life!
Amazing account of what a person can do by just putting one foot in front of the other and keep on going.
