Spotlight on Memoir

Spotlight on Memoir
In Wild, Cheryl Strayed tells the story of her emotional devastation after the death of her mother and the weeks she spent hiking the 1,100-mile Pacific Crest Trail.

Convinced that nothing else can save her, she latches onto the unlikely idea of a long solo hike. Woefully unprepared Cheryl on trail(she fails to read about the trail, buy boots that fit, or pack practically), she relies on the kindness and assistance of those she meets along the way.  Clinging to the books she lugs along — Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Adrienne Rich — Strayed labors along the demanding trail, documenting her bruises, blisters, and greater troubles. 

This chronicle, perfect for book clubs, is certain to spark lively conversation.
