Community Reviews


This gritty memoir describes the life of a 26 y.o. woman who is lost, shattered by the horrific death of her mother, a divorce, the loosening of remaining family ties, and drug use. She decides to hike through part of CA and all of Oregon to "find her center". Her account of the hike is sometimes brutal, sometimes beautiful, although not nearly as brutal as many of her flashbacks to what went before the trail.


Awesome personal account.
