I have recommended it to several friends. Cheryl Strayed's bare honesty about her "journey" at this time in her life, is admirable. This book is not just about hiking the PCT. It is about healing, growth and surviving after tragedy. Well done, Cheryl!
All of it.
If you are looking for an outdoorsy story about hiking the PCT, this may not be the book for you. If you are looking for an amazing story of a woman's choice to survive after devastation and the journey she takes to accomplish that goal, this is definitely the book for you.
This is great storytelling from the author and the narrator. The different stories turn and come together in unexpected ways.
I loved her honesty about her early family life. It couldn't have been easy to share all of those details. I also enjoyed the detail she included regarding her voice lessons with Lilian-Stiles Allen and the psychology of singing and performing. She is such a gifted person - obviously as a singer and performer, but also as an author. Please let there be a Home Part 2!
