Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed Lecture


**I have heard she is a fantastic speaker. She was at the Apple Valley Library speaking this past year**

Hear/Read about the author's solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail in this bestseller and discuss what time spent in the wilderness can teach us. 

You may choose to read the book (not provided) prior to the event or just come for the discussion with the author. Description of the book as follows:

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.
