Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

WILD by Cheryl Strayed

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail - Cheryl Strayed
  Cheryl Strayed tells of her time of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail solo. I enjoyed the story. I liked her inner strength that kept her going when others turned back. She grew up a lot on the trail and learned she had the strength to go on even when she did not have the skills. She learned what she needed when she needed it. Her teachers showed when she needed them. I liked the stories from her past. She was not always honorable but the PCT hike taught her and she looked honestly at herself and her past. Someone in my book club said she was punishing herself by hiking the PCT. After finishing it I could see the statements Ms. Strayed made in the book that states that. I think the hike and book brought her peace. It reminded me of Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods only not as humorous. Good reading!
