Absolutely loved this book. It had me looking up parts of the trail so that I knew what Cheryl was looking at. I looked up general hiking gear and calculated what my inexperienced hikers bag would roughly weigh (about as much as Monster). Although the first section of the book was hard to read as I have recently lost a loved one, I did find it well written and necessary to really understand what mental state she was in at the beginning of the book. I cried at many points in the book but also felt the joy and love that she wrote into her memoir.

I would recommend this book to anyone that has felt broken or lost.
