Women and Words Book Club
of San Antonio, Texas, recommends:
 
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed (Knopf, 2012), Memoir, 336 pages

 

"Cheryl Strayed's memoir provoked one of our favorite discussions to date. At age 26, following the sudden death of her mother, her own divorce, the scattering of her once close-knit family, and a run of reckless behavior, the author decides to hike more than one thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, from California to Washington state, alone. She is inexperienced, over-equipped, and desperate to reclaim her life. Wild tracks Strayed's personal journey on the trail as she comes to terms with devastating loss and her unpredictable reactions to it. Her journey is intense at times, at times humorous and is where she ultimately finds peace and healing.

 

"We discussed in depth her relationship with her mother (was it healthy, was she obsessed with her mom or did she simply love her deeply), her promiscuity and what that stemmed from (probably the lack of a father figure in her life), and the scary encounters she had on her hike. We all agreed the book was well written, and loved the theme of personal confrontation and self-willed healing." Snapple 

 

Paired with: "Food for our discussion all came directly from  things the author thrived on in the book: beef jerky, Snapple (her most desired drink while on the hike), candy bars and potato chips, nuts and berries (just to keep hiking in the wild authentic), and a beautiful fresh salad, which was something she often craved."
