The Plot :
At twenty-two, 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. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, as the name suggests is a book about finding yourself. It is a journey of self-discovery that the author goes through where she is able to dig deep into her past and her fears. Although I did find certain sections of the book a little slow at times, overall it was a good read.
What I loved about this book were the picturesque descriptions. The one important lesson I think I took away from the read was the realisation that forgiving ourselves for past mistakes is the only way to move on and embrace how they change and define us.
