One of my favorite reads of 2013 was Cheryl Strayed’s WILD. I was lucky to attend the Sundance Author Series luncheon where she spoke about her book and loved reading it in the weeks that followed. It’s a great memoir about finding purpose in life through experiences in the outdoors. Here’s my original post.

Now there’s a movie version out starring Reese Witherspoon.

Cheryl Strayed hiked the Pacific Crest Trail after her world fell apart around her. Although I have not lost my mother, gotten divorced or struggled with drugs I can relate to her desire to find solace in the outdoors. Experiencing wilderness, either with an epic thru-hike or a backyard campout, rounds out my life, lifts my mood and makes me a better person.

To celebrate the #WILDmovie release fox searchlight offered to host a giveaway of Cheryl Strayed’s book and a copy of the soundtrack. Just leave a comment after this post by 12/17/14 about what you get from being in the wild and you’re entered to win!

This giveaway is now over! Our randomized selection has concluded. Congratulations to Linda McGurk author of the blog Rain or Shine Mamma for winning this book and soundtrack!

  1. Being out in nature is hands down the best way to unwind for me. No matter what is stressing me out, a walk, run, hike or ski always gets a smile back on my face and a clear head to face my problems!

  2. I absolutely love being outside even if it's not always so "wild". It's the only way I get centered – with my feet on the ground. I can't wait to see the movie. I'd love to read your book.

  3. I loved it! It starts out with her on the trail she hikes. It just sounds boring, doesn't it? And then her story is told very nicely in flashbacks. I will probably have to read the book now— the movie is based upon the experiences of the girl who actually hiked this trail and then wrote a book about it. I just think there's a great art to storytelling and this movie does it really well.
