From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Wild


Item Details

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: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State -- and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than "an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise." But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone. Strayed vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

NYT Bestseller; Excellent

I requested this to be sent to Queen Charlotte. It can go to either Sandspit or Queen Charlotte. Just not qualicum Beach.

I loved this book. Probably the only thing that kept me from giving it a full 5 stars is that, by the end, I was as ready for it to be over as Strayed probably felt at the end of the PCT. Perhaps that was intentional on her part - or perhaps, it was her story, and she just decided to own it and tell it in the detail she felt necessary, but it was LONG. That said, when she ends the journey, I cried right along with her, as she ate her jumbo cone outside the drive in at the end. So, mission accomplished!! Great read - one disclaimer: don't read it if easily offended by "language".

I mostly agree with Yarnerer's comments below. The only thing that got me through the book was my love of hiking. I wanted to know where the trail ended. I didn't care so much to read about the poor and ignorant choices she made and simple disregard for human life in a sentence that went on to read 'then I ate a sandwich'. Suggestion: Skip this read and just find a book about the beauty of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.

Once I got over her being a "big stupid idiot",(she calls herself this throughout the book) and she actually started realizing there was more to life than sex and drugs I began empathizing with Cheryl and the loss of her mother and other childhood problems. Then I began enjoying the story and liking her character.

Listened to this as an audio book. Excellent.

One of the BEST books I've ever read! Cheryl pulls you into her life and you feel like you're on the trail with her. Excellent!

I *adored* this book. Very honest, quite gripping, really interesting. And it will strike a chord with anyone who has engaged with the wilderness in any challenging way.

Good audiobook. I didn't want the adventure come to an end.
