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.

I came across this book and chose to purchase it with absolutely no knowledge of what it was. I am so glad I did. This was the best story I have heard in a long time. Suspenseful, and yet satisfying. highly recommend this book.

This book was life-changing for me. Yes the first few chapters ate very hard to get through, but the story is worth it. he has a very unconventional way of describing religion, it's quite refreshing. the book is MUCH better than the movie.

This is a story that I have known since I was a young girl. tjere are parts that are just like to movie, however this is a much more intense story. I always wanted a love like Scarlett and Rhetts. now that I know the tortured love they truly had for each other, it makes my heart hurt for both of the characters. I am so happy I now know the tue meaning of Gone With the Wind.
