From the Publisher
A New York Times Bestseller -- In the wake of her mother''s death, Cheryl Strayed''s family scattered and her marriage was destroyed. Four years later, twenty- six years old with nothing to lose, Cheryl made a most impulsive decision: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert to Washington State-- alone. She had no experience as a long- distance hiker and the trail was little more than an idea. But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.
