I recently had the opportunity to interview Cheryl Strayed, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir ‘Wild’ – an incredible account of Cheryl’s eleven-hundred mile solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail on the west coast of America, following the death of her mother. Oprah Winfrey read the book and was so blown away by it that she started up her book club again.
I spoke to Cheryl about the experience of her solo hike, what it feels like when Oprah Winfrey calls your mobile and what impact the success of Wild has had on her.
