"Wild" by Cheryl Strayed
Your mother has passed away, your marriage recently ended, and you're headed in a downward spiral you can't seem to stop. What do you do when it feels like everything has fallen apart?
If you're Cheryl Strayed, you start hiking. You put on your boots, walk across trails in California and Oregon, and you find that redemption. In this inspiring memoir, Strayed proves that personal change and growth comes from within, but being out in nature also doesn't hurt the process. [$8, amazon.com]
