The Boston Globe called “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed, “a poetically told tale of devastation and redemption.” Strayed’s memoir is the story of how a 26-year-old woman walked 1,100 miles of Pacific Coast Trail in an attempt to mourn her lost mother, her failed marriage, her directionless life — and to find herself.
