The full title of this book is "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail." I came across it accidentally and am really enjoying it. It is the autobiographical account of the hike taken by a 26 year old woman in the wilderness back in 1995. Her mother had died and she was recently divorced. Her decision to take this monumental trek was her attempt to regain her "center" after her life had been upended. http://www.cherylstrayed.com/wild_108676.htm
In this group we strive to use a wide variety of books as catalysts for lively, interesting discussions. I believe that many people will find this young woman's account compelling and that it could lead to an interesting exchange of ideas. I hope you will consider coming to talk with us about this book.
