The attraction of this nonfiction work lies in its ability to make readers appreciate, wonder, and feel deeply. The writer, Cheryl Strayed, takes us on an epic adventure as she transitions from lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail.

Certain sections of the book are intensely draining; however, the ebb and flow of emotion promotes readers to develop a thorough understanding of the writer’s journey.

I encourage you to pick up a copy of this one. Once you finish this read, you’re likely to be left with an open mind, keen sense of direction, and spirited desire to live your own truth, “How wild it was, to let it be.”
