About the Author
Keith Foskett has hiked over 10,000 miles in recent years and holds a deep respect for the outdoor spaces of this world. Well known in hiking circles, he has written three books and contributes to various outdoor publications.
His books have been shortlisted for a number of awards and his outdoor blog was voted blog of the year.
He's partial to a decent bottle of Rioja, and nurtures an unhealthy interest in down sleeping bags and woollen underwear. He was born and still lives in southeast England. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Between these two books, the Camino seemed more charming, and the Pacific Crest Trail more rugged. The last leg of the journey was particularly page-turning, as winter set in and the trail was buried under snow. I thoroughly enjoyed the adventure, and there were some great characters along the way. (Pockets!!)
Now I'm on to Fozzie's third installment, Balancing On Blue, where he tackles the Appalachian Trail.
After reading "The Last Englishman," I feel like I have a decent overall handle of what it is to hike the PCT. I hope to walk either a good chunk or the whole thing while I'm still on this earth, and this book has lit a fire under my ass to do so.
Fozzie your penned words took my hand and invited me along your journey. Your passage through the desert warmed my skin; I could feel the demands on my lungs as you made your peaks and the cold though chill wrapped me in peace. And those damn DEscents, wow, my knees could almost feel the need for traversing rather than a straight walk down!
These are just a very few of the gifts discovered in The Last Englishman. This book of Keith's has been a fine introduction to a human unique (that would be you Fozzie) in a world of seven billion. So make the good, wise choice and READ.THIS.BOOK. And you too will be in love.....
