    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

    This book really captured the spirit of a woman who is absolutely broken hearted by the death of her mother. The candor of her trials as well as her stubborn drive really made me want her to continue her journey to the end. I felt her pain when she described the blisters and sores on her feet, the sores on her hips from the backpack, the disbelief when her box with her money wasn't at the post office, the decision to drink the last bit of water because there was a reservoir up ahead - and it didn't have water in it.

    This was a snapshot of a winning spirit and what this woman accomplished when the odds were against her. We all face challenges in life and just listening to Cheryl rally again and again gives me hope for everyone including myself.

    What a great book!
