Cheryl Strayed's book Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail will be the focus of discussion on Wednesday, May 27.A summary of the book reads:
Strayed tells the story of her emotional devastation after the death of her mother and the weeks she spent hiking the 1,000-mile Pacific Crest Trail. As her family, marriage, and sanity go to pieces, Strayed drifts into spontaneous encounters with other men, to the consternation of her husband, and eventually hits rock bottom while shooting up heroin with a new boyfriend. Convinced that nothing else can save her, she latches onto the unlikely idea of a long solo hike.
