Throughout her journey, Cheryl speaks of her loving "hippie" mother, memories of her half-siblings and the absence of her paternal father. Many of her internal battles were seen through bouts of drug abuse and various sexual partners. Strayed writes of friends, fellow hikers and the kindness she experienced along the route. The injuries she prevailed along the way (loss toe nails!), and self-revelations that written of will have you packing your sleeping bag and boots for a much needed therapy hike with nature. Wild reminds us through all of our struggles, we each react differently, but we are all connected and going through these experiences together. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail is currently being filmed into a major motion picture by Reese Witherspoon portraying Cheryl Strayed.
