Get Wild This Summer

Wild By Cheryl Strayed

“Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told.” – Cheryl Strayed

If you need a great summer book, we highly recommend you pick-up or download a copy of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild. It is described as, “A powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe – and built her back up again.” You will be inspired… we promise.

“Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.” This page turner does not disappoint.

While the book is currently on Oprah’s Book Club 2.0, we have reader Catherine M. to thank for turning us on to Wild first.

    Thank you, WYSK, for sharing this book with your readers. I had no idea the effect Cheryl’s story would have on me, and I think it is an uplifting example of how important it is to work on your relationship with yourself above all else.

    Just read this on vacation and I LOVED IT! What a story, what a woman… I could not put it down. It made me think, it inspired me and made me realize that we are all tougher than most of us think we are. This is a MUST READ!

    PS – I second what Catherine M. said above “uplifting example of how important it is to work on your relationship with yourself above all else.”

    I’ve always wondered how people could make these kinds of decisions–set out unprepared on a journey that makes no sense–when the rest of us are so shackled by what is expected and routine. Looking forward to being inspired to ACT!

    I purchased this book because of the WYSK suggestion. So far, I am very inspired by Cheryl Strayed’s memoir! I feel moved to challenge myself with every footstep. Her story is survival of the fittest at its best!
