Description

A number one New York Times bestseller
Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection
Radio Four’s ‘Book of the Week’

The official tie-in edition to the stunningly raw and powerful film adaptation of the bestselling memoir, starring Reese Witherspoon.

At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise – a promise of piecing together a life that lay shattered at her feet…

Publisher Review

Amazing and inspiring * Nicole Kidman * A deeply honest memoir about mother and daughter, solitude and courage, and regaining footing, one step at a time * Vogue * It's not very manly, the topic of weeping while reading... Wild pretty much obliterated me * Scotsman * Extraordinary... Truly wild: dirty, beautiful, serene * Sunday Telegraph * Funny and fierce * Independent on Sunday * Epic and moving * Sunday Times * One of the best books I've read in the last five or ten years... Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it's destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time. * Nick Hornby *
