Looking for your next adventure? It might be between the pages of a book! Check out twelve stories by or about Badass Women Adventurers who will light a fire in your soul. Join local educator Jill Davis the second Monday of the month for your next adventurous read! This month we'll discuss Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State--and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
