Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail Review

To put it simply, this book made me want to drop everything I was doing, grab some hiking boots and a much lighter pack than the one she carries, and get hiking. "Wild" is not a how-to guide for surviving the trail, but rather an interesting and thought provoking look at what pushed one woman, Cheryl Strayed, to hike for months on her own in the high mountains that follow the Pacific Coast.

The book itself was a great reminder of the incredible beauty of the world around us. And even if I don't drop of out of school and quit my job to go on a strenuous hike after reading this book, it will still encourage me to spend more time outside and remind me to push myself to do things I thought impossible.
