The plan that Cheryl Strayed hatched wasn't just naïve or foolish; it seemed almost suicidal: Without hiking or even backpack experience, this callow 26-year-old set out to walk the entire Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,663-mile wilderness route from the Mexican border to Canada, across nine mountain ranges and three states. This solo project had been born less from a passion for nature than a deep sense of desperation. Cheryl's marriage was in its last crumbling stages and she was still reeling from the cancer death of her mother four years before. What she learned on the trip about extreme hiking, but mostly especially about herself is the subject of this fascinating, inspiriting memoir.
