About the author:
At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she'd lost everything when her mother died young of cancer. Her family scattered in their grief, her marriage was soon destroyed, and slowly her life spun out of control. Four years after her mother's death, with nothing more to lose, Strayed 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. Wild is the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe—and built her back up again.
“Spectacular . . . Gripping . . . A breathtaking adventure tale and a profound meditation on the nature of grief and survival . . . A literary and human triumph.” —Dani Shapiro, New York Times Book Review. Wild, a New York Times bestseller was the first selection of Oprah Winfrey for her new Oprah’s Book Club 2.0. It has recently been optioned for a film by Reese Witherspoon. Cheryl Strayed is also the bestselling author of Tiny Beautiful Things and the novel Torch.
