I’m hiking in order to save myself –

At 22 she lost her mother, in the four years following – everything unravels. Thats why Cheryl Strayed decided to walk the the Pacific Crest Trail.

Strayed’s memoir about the hike, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, is a fantastic story about transformation and becoming oneself. The movie based on the book, staring Reese Witherspoon, is also good, but one gets a much better sense of time in the text version. And coming to terms with oneself sure can take a lot of time & suffering …

    I, too, loved this book and enjoyed Strayed’s writing. Probably will not see the movie but from everything I’ve read, Witherspoon’s performance is excellent. And you said it, Sigrun: “coming to terms with oneself sure can take a lot of time & suffering …”

      I think I would have found the film excellent had I not already read the book 🙂
