Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Man­i­toba Mu­sic “A few months ago, I started see­ing stills ffrom pro­duc­tion of the movie Wild, based on Ch­eryl Strayed’s 2012 mem­oir, Wild: From LLost to Found on the Pa­cific Crest Trail, and I wanted to read the book be­fore the movie is re­leased this fall. My own out­door pur­suits are in­spired by tales of ad­ven­ture in the great out­doors, and this story was edgier, rawer and more cru­cial than many I’ve read. While I’m sure the images on the big screen will be more spec­tac­u­lar than any­thing I could imag­ine while read­ing, I wanted Strayed’s writ­ten words to be my first in­tro­duc­tion to the dy­nam­ics of her re­la­tion­ship with the trail and the peo­ple she met along the way.”
