Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Book Recommendation)

I am a hiker and actually climbed Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the lower 48 states a few years ago.  Last summer, I spent 4 nights on a mother-son camping-kayaking trip on a remote, uninhabited island in Lake Michigan.  Modern amenities not included!  I can appreciate the rough, outdoor adventure.  Perhaps it is the reason I enjoyed Wild:  From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).  It is the memoir of Cheryl Stayed, who at the young age of 26, brave or impulsive, hiked solo a 1000 mile stretch of the PCT.  Unprepared physically, she was over loaded with a backpack, called Monster, with hiking boots a size too small.  From the Mojave Desert, through Oregon, ending at the Bridge of the Gods in Washington, it is a journey of self-discovery, healing, faith, and personal power – the pilgrim way on the PCT.  Wild?  Yes!

Prayers Work.
