Cheryl Strayed is the author of the acclaimed, #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Wild. At age 22, Strayed found herself shattered by two major life events: her mother's sudden death from cancer and the end of her young marriage. To cope, Strayed used drugs and sex before she hit rock bottom and confronted her emotional pain by attempting to hike the Paciï¬c Crest Trail. Wild tells the amateur hiker's tale, and illustrates the healing power of our wild places. Strayed is also the author of the novel Torch, and her stories and essays have been published in The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post Magazine, Allure, and The Best American Essays.
