Reeling after the death of her mother Cheryl spirals into drugs and depression. She finds solace in unfeeling when she realises that her scattered family and distant husband are not there to help pick up the pieces. She makes a decision. The Pacific Crest Trail stretches more than a thousand miles from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State – and she will do it alone. Without any training and little research, she sets off on the journey that will change her life. Written with warmth and humour Wild is a wonderful story of one woman’s trek to find herself and heal her soul.
