This is the link to a sample film review for Wild–From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, starring Reese Witherspoon, based on Cheryl Strayed’s book.

Hopes are that this movie will help ratchet up foot traffic on the 2,663 mile Pacific Crest Trail which runs from Mexico to Canada. In a country with a 30% obesity rate (tragic in my opinion) that is

nothing but a good thing. And let me say this about Miss Strayed’s book. She has gotten a fairly large sampling of one-star reviews, with comments along the lines of “I can’t believe she wrote that.”

I am utterly hostile to such thinking. As my favorite writer, Pat Conroy, says, “I want it all. That’s all I ask. That you tell me exactly what you’re thinking.” Miss Strayed has done that and hopefully the

movie portrays that.

Bill Walker is the author of  popular hiking books, including Skywalker–Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail and Skywalker–Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail.
