Overview

After the death of her mother and the breakdown of her marriage, writer Cheryl Strayed set off on a solo 1,100-mile hike along the 2,663 mile-long Pacific Crest Trail in a desperate attempt to make sense of her life.

The PCT was established in 1968 and completed in 1993, beginning near the US-Mexican border in California, running through Oregon, and ending near the US-Canadian border in Washington. The trail cuts through the desert, forest, national parks, and tribal and private land.

In 1995, when Strayed began her journey, she was one of only 100 people who'd been brave and skilled enough to do so. Most of these hikers were men, and few hiked alone. In 2014, Wild was adapted as a movie starring Reese Witherspoon.

Favorite Quote

"I'd made the arguably unreasonable decision to take a long walk alone on the PCT in order to save myself… I believed that all the things I'd been before had prepared me for this journey. But nothing had or could."
