Strayed in 
St Boswells

Seventy people attended an author evening with American writer Cheryl Strayed at Mainstreet Trading in St Boswells last Thursday.

It was the 45-year-old’s first visit to Scotland, promoting her book Wild, a travelogue and searingly emotional, raw and honest book about her walk and recovery along the Pacific Crest Trail in 1995.

She answered audience questions, after reading from her bestseller, soon to be a film starring Reece Wetherspoon.
