By Cheryl Strayed
Cheryl is in her mid twenties and trying to come to terms with some life changing events. After the death of her mother and a divorce from her husband that she is still in love with, Cheryl decides to hike the Pacific Coast Trail, a trail that parallels the west coast from Mexico to Canada. She hopes to discover how to move beyond her past and into a better future. I thought it was pretty amazing what Cheryl accomplished both physically and mentally.
