This is a thread dedicated to the history, well known people and events associated with the great state of Oregon.

You may add books that take place in this state, are about this state, have a scene that takes place in this state or have events where this state is mentioned.

There is no self promotion on the History Book Club.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail



Wild From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed by Cheryl Strayed Cheryl Strayed

Synopsis:

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life.

With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State — and she would do it alone.

Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
