At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America - from the Mojave Desert, through California and Oregon, and into Washington state - and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise - a promise of piecing together a life that lay in ruins at her feet. Strayed's account captures the agonies - both mental and physical - of her incredible journey; how it maddened and terrified her, and how, ultimately, it healed her. "Wild" is a brutal memoir of survival, grief and redemption: a searing portrayal of life at its lowest ebb and at its highest tide. It is suitable for readers of "Touching the Void" by Joe Simpson, Jim Perrin's "West", Rhoda Janzen's "Mennonite in a Little Black Dress" and Christopher Hitchens' "Mortality".

'Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it's destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time.' Nick Hornby * 'Clear, honest, and quietly riveting' - Marie Claire * 'A spectacular book... Both a literary and a human triumph' - New York Times * 'A deeply honest memoir about mother and daughter, solitude and courage, and regaining footing, one step at a time' - Vogue * 'Strayed's language is so vivid, sharp and compelling that you feel the heat of the desert, the frigid ice of the High Sierra and the breathtaking power of one remarkable woman finding her way - and herself - one brave step at a time.' - People
