A City Girl Walks from Mexico to Canada

on the Pacific Crest Trail

Tamed, by Anne Elizabeth O’Regan, is an intimate portrayal of one woman’s journey through a myriad of internal and external landscapes while backpacking alone in the wilderness. Join her as she leaves city life behind and ventures into realms of the deep unknown. Even if you have no desire to actually take such a hike yourself, by the time you finish reading Tamed, you may feel as if you walked every step of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail with her!
