Found in the Wild

If your life was falling apart, would you think the world was telling you to take a hike—a 1,000-mile hike?

On a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s Up to Date, host Steve Kraske interviewed author Cheryl Strayed about trekking the trails from the Mojave Desert to Washington State as she tried to heal from the aftermath of her mother’s death and her own divorce.

Strayed is the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of the memoir “Wild,” the advice essay collection “Tiny Beautiful Things” and the novel “Torch.” “Wild” was Oprah Winfrey’s first selection for Oprah’s Book Club 2.0.

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
