Wild: from lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail
At age 26, Strayed was hiking solo on the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,663 wilderness route stretching from Mexico to Canada and traversing nine mountain ranges and three states. Still reeling from the loss of her mother four years earlier, Strayed felt that the trip would bring her a sense of closure and a new purpose in life. Woefully unprepared, she often relies on the kindness of strangers and finds all manner of experiences from close encounters with creatures of the wild to violent acts of nature. She emerges as from a trial by fire, a changed person, a survivor.
