I’d been craving a book like this for some time now.
Powerful and raw, Cheryl Strayed’s experience while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail is truly remarkable.
At times, you feel like you’re right there with her, and at other times, you think that she is absolutely crazy for even thinking about doing this on her own.
At many points, I was ready to pack my bag and head off to do this trail myself thinking about how life changing an experience like this could be.
Bur then, she would run into yet another rattlesnake and I would quickly change my mind and sit back down on my comfy couch.
Also, rarely has a book made me cry, but Cheryl Strayed, you managed to achieve that more than once. R.I.P. Lady. Insert ugly-cry here.
Truth is, while I do crave this sort of experience in my core, I don’t know if I’d be able to do it. It takes a strong person (and stubborn too!) to set this type of goal and achieve it.
Either way, thanks Cheryl, for pushing me into believing that I (maybe) can do something crazy like this too. Maybe someday, some trail…
