Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail — Review

April 4, 2014

This was a really great book. I enjoyed reading about Cheryl Strayed’s emotional and arduous journey along the Pacific Crest Trail and the things in her life that led her to that decision. Though here are probably very few people who could claim to have gone through what Strayed did in her early adult life, her story remains incredibly relatable. The struggles of figuring out who you are, what you want, and of what you are truly capable are those that will resonate with many readers.

I read Strayed’s other book Tiny Beautiful Things a while ago and liked it, but I kind of wish that I had read Wild first — I think  that it provides so much more context for the advice that she gave as Dear Sugar.

Nevertheless, I recommend both books. Maybe it’s because I’m inching closer to that “quarter life crisis” or something, but these books are feeling more poignant and important for me these days and I feel the need to push them on others. So here I am. Pushing.
