Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
I recently read the book — in bed and got snot all over my pillow. Then I saw the movie and re-cried all over my face in the theater. Wild is a really compelling story about screwing up and redemption; physically grueling walks through the wilderness; the joys of being alone and of reading; the crap way we treat our parents; and what happens when they die, young and suddenly.
“The trees were tall, but I was taller, standing above them on a steep mountain slope in northern California.”
