Kurzbeschreibung

10. Juli 2012 Vintage

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

Pressestimmen

“A rich, riveting true story . . . During her grueling three-month journey, Strayed circled around black bears and rattlesnakes, fought extreme dehydration by drinking oily gray pond water, and hiked in boots made entirely of duct tape.  Reading her matter-of-fact take on love and grief and the soul-saving quality of a Snapple lemonade, you can understand why Strayed has earned a cult following as the author of Dear Sugar, a popular advice column on therumpus.net. . . . With its vivid descriptions of beautiful but unforgiving terrain, Wild is a cinematic story, but Strayed’s book isn’t really about big, cathartic moments. The author never ‘finds herself’ or gets healed. When she reaches the trail’s end, she buys a cheap ice cream cone and continues down the road. . . . It’s hard to imagine anything more important than taking one step at a time. That’s endurance, and that’s what Strayed understands, almost 20 years later. As she writes, ‘There was only one [option], I knew. To keep walking.’ Our verdict: A.” —Melissa Maerz, Entertainment Weekly

“Strayed’s journey was as transcendent as it was turbulent. She faced down hunger, thirst, injury, fatigue, boredom, loss, bad weather, and wild animals. Yet she also reached new levels of joy, accomplishment, courage, peace, and found extraordinary companionship.” —Marjorie Kehe, Christian Science Monitor 
 
“It’s not very manly, the topic of weeping while reading. Yet for a book critic tears are an occupational hazard. Luckily, perhaps, books don’t make me cry very often. Turning pages, I’m practically Steve McQueen. Strayed’s memoir, Wild, however, pretty much obliterated me. I was reduced, during her book’s final third, to puddle-eyed cretinism. I like to read in coffee shops, and I began to receive concerned glances from matronly women, the kind of looks that said, ‘Oh, honey.’ To mention all this does Strayed a bit of a disservice, because there’s nothing cloying about Wild. It’s uplifting, but not in the way of many memoirs, where the uplift makes you feel that you’re committing mental suicide. This book is as loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song. It’s got a punk spirit and makes an earthy and American sound. . . . Wild recounts the months Strayed spent when she was 26, hiking alone on the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State. There were very frightening moments, but the author was not chewed on by bears, plucked dangling from the edge of a pit, buried by an avalanche or made witness to the rapture. No dingo ate anyone’s baby. Yet everything happened. 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 Into the Wild and Into Thin Air. . . . Her grief, early in this book, is as palpable as her confusion. Her portrait of her mother, who died of cancer at 45, is raw and bitter and reverent all at once. . . . Wild is thus the story of an unfolding. She got tougher, mentally as well as physically [and she] tells good, scary stories about nearly running out of water, encountering leering men and dangerous animals. . . The lack of ease in her life made her fierce and funny; she hammers home her hard-won sentences like a box of nails. The cumulative welling up I experienced during Wild was partly a response to that too infrequent sight: that of a writer finding her voice, and sustaining it, right in front of your eyes.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times 
 
“One of the most original, heartbreaking and beautiful American memoirs in years. . . . The unlikely journey is awe-inspiring, but it's one of the least remarkable things about the book. Strayed, who was recently revealed as the anonymous author of the ‘Dear Sugar’ advice column of the literary website The Rumpus, writes with stunningly authentic emotional resonance—Wild is brutal and touching in equal measures, but there's nothing forced about it. She chronicles sorrow and loss with unflinching honesty, but without artifice or self-pity. There are no easy answers in life, she seems to be telling the reader. Maybe there are no answers at all. It's fitting, perhaps, that the writer chose to end her long pilgrimage at the Bridge of the Gods, a majestic structure that stretches a third of a mile across the Columbia, the largest river in the Pacific Northwest. We think of bridges as separating destinations, just as we think of long journeys as the price we have to pay to get from one place to another. Sometimes, though, the journey is the destination, and the bridge connects more than just dots on a map—it joins reality with the dream world, the living with the dead, the tame with the wild.” —Michael Schaub, NPR Books 
 
“Brilliant. . . pointedly honest . . . Part adventure narrative, part deeply personal reflection, Wild chronicles an adventure born of heartbreak. . . . While it is certain that the obvious dangers of the trail are real — the cliffs are high, the path narrow, the ice slick, and the animal life wild — the book’s greatest achievement lies in its exploration of the author’s emotional landscape. With flashbacks as organic and natural as memory itself, Strayed mines the bedrock of her past to reveal what rests beneath her compulsion to hike alone across more than one thousand primitive miles: her biological father’s abuse and abandonment, her mother’s diagnosis and death, and her family’s unraveling. Strayed emerges from her grief-stricken journey as a practitioner of a rare and vital vocation. She has become an intrepid cartographer of the human heart.” —Bruce Machart, Houston Chronicle 
 
“Strayed writes a crisp scene; her sentences hum with energy. She can describe a trail-parched yearning for Snapple like no writer I know. She moves us briskly along the route, making discrete rest stops to parcel out her backstory. It becomes impossible not to root for her.” —Karen R. Long, The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“[A] vivid, touching and ultimately inspiring account of a life unraveling, and of the journey that put it back together. . . . The darkness is relieved by self-deprecating humor as [Strayed] chronicles her hiking expedition and the rebirth it helped to inspire. . . . Wild easily transcends the hiking genre, though it presents plenty of details about equipment ordeals and physical challenges. Anyone with some backpacking experience will find Strayed's chronicle especially amusing. Her boots prove too small. The trail destroys her feet. Then there is the possibility of real mortality: She repeatedly finds herself just barely avoiding rattlesnakes. Strayed is honest about the tedium of hiking but also alert to the self-discovery that can be stirred by solitude and self-reliance. . . . Pathos and humor are her main companions on the trail, although she writes vividly about the cast of other pilgrims she encounters. Finding out ‘what it was like to walk for miles,’ Strayed writes, was ‘a powerful and fundamental experience.’ And knowing that feeling has a way of taming the challenges thrown up by modern life.” —Michael J. Ybarra, The Wall Street Journal 
 
“Strayed’s journey is the focal point of Wild, in which she interweaves suspenseful accounts of her most harrowing crises with imagistic moments of reflection. Her profound grief over her mother’s death, her emotional abandonment by her siblings and stepfather, and her personal shortcomings and misadventures are all conveyed with a consistently grounded, quietly pained self-awareness. On the trail, she fends of everything from loneliness to black bears; we groan when her boots go tumbling off a cliff and we rejoice as she transforms from a terrified amateur hiker into the ‘Queen of the PCT.’ In a style that embodies her wanderlust, Strayed transports us with this gripping, ultimately uplifting tale.” —Catherine Straut, ELLE 
 
“Spectacular. Wild is at once a breathtaking adventure tale and a profound meditation on the nature of grief and survival. . . . . Strayed’s load is both literal and metaphorical—so heavy that she staggers beneath its weight. . . . Often when narratives are structured in parallel arcs, the two stories compete and one dominates. But in Wild, the two tales Strayed tells, of her difficult past and challenging present, are delivered in perfect balance. Not only am I not an adventurer myself, but I am not typically a reader of wilderness stories. Yet I was riveted step by precarious step through Strayed’s encounters with bears, rattlesnakes, mountain lion scat, ice, record snow and predatory men. She lost six toenails, suffered countless bruises and scabs, improvised bootees made of socks wrapped in duct tape, woke up one time covered in frogs, and met strangers who were extraordinarily kind to her. Perhaps her adventure is so gripping because Strayed relates its gritty, visceral details not out of a desire to milk its obviously dramatic circumstances, but out of a powerful, yet understated, imperative to understand its meaning. We come to feel how her actions and her internal struggles intertwine, and appreciate the lessons she finds embedded in the natural world. . . . Strayed is a clearheaded, scarred, human, powerful and enormously talented writer who is secure enough to confess she does not have all the answers. . . Wild isn’t a concept-generated book, that is, one of those great projects that began as a good, salable idea. Rather, it started out as an experience that was ...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Absolut lesenswert! 7. Mai 2013
Von JM Davis
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Tolles Buch. Strayed wechselt zwischen ihren Erlebnissen auf dem Trail und Erinnerungen an ihre Vergangenheit, die sie letztendlich zu diesem Hiking Trip gebracht haben. Man möchte automatisch mehr über die Natur und Landschaft, Land und Leute erfahren, denen sie auf ihrer Reise begegnet. Schön verfasst, die Anekdoten gut ausgearbeitet und die Landschaft wundervoll beschrieben. Der "normalsterbliche" und wanderunerfahrene Leser kann sich gut mit Strayed identifizieren, ihre Erzählweise wirkt authentisch und ehrlich. Teilweise ein klein wenig schleppend, da sie natürlich ihre persönlichen Erinnerungen familiärer und privater Probleme in diesem Werk verarbeitet. Natürlich zeigt dies die Hintergründe der Reise auf und insgesamt ist dieses Buch definitiv zu empfehlen. Kommt wohl auf den Leser an, ob auch Cheryls gefühlsbetonte Seite und emotionale Innenwelt so faszinierend findet wie ihr einzigartiges Wandererlebnis.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found 6. Juni 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
An incredible true story of a troubled woman who took to a wilderness trail to get away from it all, only to find that the answers to her problems were within herself the whole time. Serious and funny, pondering and hilarious - a great story of personal accomplishment and, in addition, an interesting guide to the Pacific Crest National Scenic trail, which I had not been previously aware of.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing book and amazing trip 15. Juli 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read an article about Cheryl Strayed in the German magazine Happinez. Although I found it interesting the German title of the book did not catch me. But then I saw the book at an airport in the US and was fascinated by the title. And now I am amazed by the story and I am also amazed what a transformation Cheryl Strayed has gone thru. Great book!

Reading Cheryl's story i really felt the urge to hop into my hiking boots and get out there myself. The way she describes her journey on the PCT trail was heart-warming and very inspiring and I didn't want the book to end. One of the best I've read in a while!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht sehr spannend 20. April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich hatte mich von den vielen begeisterten Rezensionen zum Kauf verleiten lassen. Konnte dann aber doch nicht viel mit der Beschreibung dieses Selbstfindungstrips anfangen. Meiner Meinung nach nicht besonders spannend geschrieben, so dass ich das Buch nach ca. einem Drittel weggelegt habe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Abenteuerlich und inspirierend 13. August 2013
Von R. Recht
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
mit diesem Buch begreift man einiges über die wirklichen Härten des Wanderns und die Art des Kampfes, den man auf diesem Feld gewinnen kann. Den Mut der Autorin, sich über eine so ungastfreundliche Strecke mit ihrem Monster auf dem Rücken und kaputten Füßen den Weg zu bahnen, finde ich ausgesprochen bewunderungswürdig, und ebenso, dass sie nie der Versuchung erlegen ist, sich dem - durchaus verständlichen - Selbstmitleid hinzugeben. Spannend ist ihre Darstellung der Verflechtung von inneren, psychischen Themen und Erfahrungen in der von ihr erlebten Außenwelt. Nach der Lektüre des Buches bedauert man von ganzem Herzen, dass es nicht weitergeht und möchte am liebsten sofort einen Rucksack packen...
