Yes, because I could identify with the Cheryl and her challenges as she was "talking" to me about her past struggles and goal.
Cheryl- She took a huge risk and backpacked alone without any experience. Something I would like to do but not sure I have the guts
She has a great voice and really became Cheryl
When she had to kill her mother's horse. The story behind why her mother had the horse and how it saved her life. It was very sad the horse did not die right away
I hated Cheryl that she could not be true to her marriage.
I really enjoyed this story. Glad to see others commented before I bought it.
However, the conclusion was very vague-
Haven't read the print version
none other - a very unique story
2 of them... not "favorite" but powerful. The first was when they had to put down her mother's horse and the second when she was accosted by the 3 "fishermen" on the trail.
This is one the best books we have listened to. The author is an excellent writer/memoir/storyteller and the reader, is a huge compliment to this fine story.
Thanks to both.
I would listent to wild over and over again because it offers so many life lessons that may not be absorbed the first time.
Yes, it was worth the time, most of the book. Biggest negative was the excessive dwelling on the subjects relationship with her mother, which sometimes bordered on neurotic (just my opinion). I was more interested in the nature descriptions, the mental and physical effort that it took to accomplish the walk.
I have not. I did enjoy her voice and pace.
No, if it's more wallowing in her past relationships. If there is something new and fresh, then yes.
No I never have time for that,
No, she was great
Takes you on a journey then...spits you out. Made me face some of my own demands along the way. Brilliant Cheryl is. I wish I could walk the PCT but this is as close as I will ever get.And I'm okay with that.: )
Get lost and then found on the PCT with Cheryl. Loves
It was very inspirational and entertaining! What book can do that these days? It motivated me to try such a hike!
Highly Recommend - I had never heard of this book when it popped up as a suggestion, but the sample caught my interest, so I took a chance and bought it. I'm so glad I did, because it is one of the best books I've listened to in a while. It is a memoir of the author's solo hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. It's the rare non-fiction adventure story centered around a woman. With the vivid details I felt like I was on the trail with Strayed. This story is not just about hiking though, it is about the author's quest to recover from several tragedies in her life, and again, I felt like I was there, growing with her.
The author used a vivid descriptive style that let me share in her day to day experiences on the Pacific Coast Trail.
