Gone Feral: Tracking My Dad Through the Wild

61E+c2vzseLGone Feral: Tracking My Dad Through the Wild is a memoir by Novella Carpenter. Carpenter’s father abandoned her family when she was young and she has limited contact with him over the years. It is not until he goes missing that she realizes that she needs to find him for her own growth and closure. This was a quick and interesting read, but I found myself feeling like I did when I read Wild by Cheryl Strayed – I just wanted to throttle the main character for acting so stupidly so often. I know both Strayed and Carpenter grew up in terrible circumstances, but some of their poor choices just made me cringe and want to give up on their stories. In the end, though, I did enjoy both books.
