    At 22, 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: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed the stories about the people she met along the way. It reminded me of my backpacking trip. Meeting others along the way, doing the same thing you are. It brought that feeling back to me of feeling that instant connection and the sense of security gained from being with someone in a similar situation.


    Any additional comments?

    While you may not learn a lot about the trail itself it is in the journey that I found the most entertainment. I'm not sure that I like her but the situations she encountered along the way are relatable and you can empathize with the fear, worry and elation that she experiences along her journey as she encounters new challenges and meets new people.
