I am currently reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed. It's an autobiography about a woman who hikes alone on the Pacific Coast Trail for three months after she faces incredible hardships in her life. It was recommended to me by many friends, blogs, and family members. I'm only about half way through it, but I love it. Strayed writes with humor and heart, which is impressive considering the things that had happened in her life prior to hiking the PCT. When she sets out, she's inexperienced and untrained for an extended hike all by herself, but she figures it out as she goes. I find Wild incredibly interesting and even though it paints a scary picture of solo hiking, I can't help but want to follow in her footsteps.
