Great book: "Cheryl Strayed: 'Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail'" [View all]

(Edit: I probably shoud've posted this in non-fiction, but it's a good book, period.) I got the recommendation for it from a friend. Personally, I read more fiction than non-fiction, and I wasn't sure I'd like this book, but I found it extraordinary. Well-written and easy to connect with the author.

Here's a link to read more about it:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/28/books/wild-by-cheryl-strayed-a-walkabout-of-reinvention.html?pagewanted=all

From that link:
The clarity of Ms. Strayed’s prose, and thus of her person, makes her story, in its quiet way, nearly as riveting an adventure narrative as Jon Krakauer’s two “Into” books: those matey fraternal twins, “Into the Wild” and “Into Thin Air.”
