#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER 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.

This book is a follow-up to 48 Dog-Friendly Trails in California’s Foothills and the Sierra Nevada, published by AuthorHouse in 2008. In keeping with the first book’s structure, there are four trailheads described for each month of the year to encourage year-round outdoor excursions. In some cases, there are multiple trail choices from a single trailhead so everyone can find an outing suitable to their group’s individual needs. Trails are all dog friendly, with some providing off-leash opportunities. Many of the trails are also suitable for joggers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. A table at the back of the book identifies the usage for each trail. You will also find information as to which trails feature great views, swimming, family access, fishing, and other activities. Listening to reader’s feedback from the first book, with the new book the focus is in finding more obscure trails so even the most experienced enthusiast will find new places to explore. There are also maps for trails with difficult descriptions. Trails are still rated from ‘1’ (easiest) to ‘5’ (most difficult), but with this book you will find more trails with a ‘4’ and ‘5’ rating. Still there are easy options for each month, but overall there are more challenging opportunities.
