There are two movies coming out this year based on books supposedly about hiking. As previously discussed the Bill Bryson books "A Walk in the Woods" and now "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed. Both are presented as hiking movies and both are about things other than hiking.

I was very disappointing with the Wild book because I felt it was more about her problems which she failed to address than actually finding redemption on the PCT. Struck me as "are you bragging or complaining?"

The Bryson book was written for humor rather than a story about the AT. I generally enjoy Bryson but as a backpacker I was offended because folks think it represents actual backpacking.
