Praise

"It is [Strayed's] voice--fierce, billowing with energy, precise--that carries WILD. . . . By turns both devastating and glorious, Strayed uses it to narrate her progress and setbacks on the trail and within herself." - Melanie Rehak 03/03/2012

"Strayed writes a crisp scene; her sentences hum with energy. She can describe a trail-parched yearning for Snapple like no writer I know. She moves us briskly along the route, making discrete rest stops to parcel out her backstory. It is improvised and often unnerving.". - Karen Long 03/25/2012

"This book is as loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song. It's got a punk spirit and makes an earthy and American sound." - Dwight Garner 03/28/2012

"Perhaps her adventure is so gripping because Strayed relates its gritty, visceral details not out of a desire to milk its obviously dramatic circumstances but out of a powerful, yet understated, imperative to understand its meaning. We come to feel how her actions and her internal struggles intertwine, and appreciate the lessons she finds embedded in the natural world." - Dani Shapiro 04/01/2012

"Strayed recounts the road to redemption--a road buried in snow, crawling with rattlers, and patrolled by bears--with humor and irrefutably hard-won wisdom." - Elissa Schappell 03/13/2012
