Cheryl Strayed, "Wild"

The writer Cheryl Strayed is coming to Utah next week, so Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with her about her acclaimed memoir Wild. It's the story of her 1100 mile journey along the Pacific Crest Trail. She was 26 at the time; her marriage was falling apart and she was grieving for her dead mother. It was a loss she says brought her to her most savage self. [Rebroadcast]
