AGCM Book Club // Wild by Cheryl Strayed

The CEO of the company I worked for was my Secret Santa and he gifted me with this book. Always down to read a book especially about adventures that push us to be better people, I was excited to crack it open. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed, is about woman named Cheryl Strayed who in her early to mid-twenties, after she loses everything including her mother to cancer, her marriage and self control; she decides to embark on a solo hiking trip through the Pacific Crest Trail.She expects to "run away" in a sense and clear her mind with less distractions but discovers and experiences so much more. Filled with trials and tribulations along the way, she gains courage, strength, friendships, adventure, acts of kindness from many people and a deeper perspective when it comes to life and her life. It got kind of slow to me in the middle because I was just ready for her to be done hiking, lol, but you grow seasoned with her as she spends her whole summer blazing the trail meeting new people and stumbling upon various revelations.
