First audio book review for 2013 : Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Wild : From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

By: Cheryl Strayed

Genre: nonfiction

Pages: 315

Published: 2011

Audio book: 11 CD's (13 hours 3 mins)

Read: January

5 out of 5 stars

This nonfiction story will have you wanting totake your own 2 month adventure through the Pacific Crest Trail. Feeling alone, after her mother passed and a divorce, Cheryl changes her last name and leaves her life. She hikes the PCT alone never having more then twenty bucks in her pocket. This adventure leaves her learning more about herself than she ever expecting and saddened when the trail through California and Oregon is finally over. She meets several hikers along the way and while she enjoys the time spent with them, she always went off again on her own. You cannot read (listen) to this book and not enjoy it. The audio was good, although I felt the voice sounded older than the age Cheryl was when she hiked the PCT.
