The official tie-in edition to the stunningly raw and powerful film adaptation of the bestselling memoir, starring Reese Witherspoon.

At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise - a promise of piecing together a life that lay shattered at her feet...

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the best books I've read in the last five or ten years... Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it's destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time. * Nick Hornby *
Epic and moving * Sunday Times *
Funny and fierce * Independent on Sunday *
Extraordinary... Truly wild: dirty, beautiful, serene * Sunday Telegraph *
It's not very manly, the topic of weeping while reading... Wild pretty much obliterated me * Scotsman *
A deeply honest memoir about mother and daughter, solitude and courage, and regaining footing, one step at a time * Vogue *

Amazing and inspiring

* Nicole Kidman *

“Fantastic”

'Wild' is totally absorbing, well-written and inspirational. It made me laugh and cry, and I was sorry to reach the end of it. The account of the author's hike is gripping, and the personal back-story... More

“Good Personal Memoir”

As Strayed sets off the Pacific Coast Trail, not only is her physical pack huge and heavy, but her metaphorical baggage is too. Her violent father left when she was six; her mother died of cancer when she was 22; she... More
