wild: from lost to found on the pacific crest trail

Absolutely breathtaking – the kind of novel that reminds you why stories are an integral part of our humanity, from the kind of author who lets you walk away feeling like an intimate friend. I raced through this book and then stopped short when I realized how close to the end I’d gotten. Strayed writes with unmatched candor and a careful thread of continuity that, while at times seems repetitive, makes the text read as if it were your mother’s diary or a tale from memory told by best friends around a campfire. Even better, this book is a testament to and evidence of the power of humanity, both physically (the incredible triumph of our bodies) and spiritually (our enormous capacity for kindness).
