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."
"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.".
"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."
"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."
"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."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Traces the personal crisis the author endured after the death of her mother and a painful divorce, which prompted her ambition to undertake a dangerous thousand-mile solo hike that both drove her to rock bottom and helped her to heal.
