When eighth grader Abby Lovitt looks out at those pure-gold rolling hills, she knows there's no place she'd rather be than her family's ranch - even with all the hard work of tending to nine horses. But some chores are no work at all, like grooming young Jack. At eight months, his rough foal coat has shed out, leaving a smooth, rich silk, like chocolate. As for Black George, such a good horse, it turns out he's a natural jumper.

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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wild to be better than the print version?

I don't know, most my books are audio.

What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

yes

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It did make me laugh, there were many parts of the story I could really relate to.

Any additional comments?

I loved her sharing her journey through these difficult times of her life and the trip she made on the PCT!!
