'Telling the true story of a six-month PCT hike from Mexico to Canada, crossing wild desert and mountain and meeting everything from eccentric hikers to rattlesnakes along the way. Easy to read and at times laugh-out-loud funny, it will make you want to pack your rucksack and go.'
- Rosie Fuller (Adventure Travel magazine).
'Long distance backpacking trips can be monotonous, and it's often the same story for most books about them. Balancing on Blue is something completely different and once again, Keith invites you to the world that he calls home.
Be prepared for great story telling, unique and interesting characters, humour and insight.'
- Andrew Skurka (Long distance hiker, adventurer and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2007).

Keith is a fantastic story teller and "Fozzie" (his trail name) is someone you will instantly come to love.
These books are both the fuel to fire a desire for your own thru-hike and the perfect way to reminisce about hiking that you may have done in the past.
Even if you can't get out on the trail today, you can dive into the miles and escape from your prison in the real world within these pages.
The first journey in France and Spain was less familiar, more food oriented (and sadly, loaded with references to smoking). Quite an interesting journey, physically, mentally and spiritually. I have read so many books and blogs from the AT and PCT, but these were a welcome re-visit. The only things that made me sigh a bit.. if someone finds a trail name you tried to give them objectionable, please drop it in referring to that person.. Sorry, not sorry.
But overall enjoyable reads, about the places, process and progress, and all the other hikers.
Fozzie, I hope you are enjoying life and having more adventures that you will share.
My passion is hiking, and I love the term dromomania. I enjoy reading the experiences Keith describes so vividly. His writing style brings the adventure to life.
Read all of his books if you are even remotely interested in the adventurous lifestyle of thru hiking. No one does it better than Keith Foskett.
It's over 1,000 pages of travel, adventure, history, and memoir heaven.

I cant recomend these books enougth they transport me from the mundane to the extraordinary.
Regarding the bookseller, the book was delivered within the time frame specified and is in good condition.
with just the correct amount of banter /serious side , there is detail on some of the solitude but it doesn't grate on as this is a balance on these kind of trips between loneliness and satisfaction of being alone with nature, the narrative is extremely difficult to keep fluid with the changes of people met , places visited , personal struggles but the author manages it with ease.
I would like to thank MrFoskett for producing an excellent piece of literature and would recommend to anybody who enjoys the outdoors, travel and a great balance of humour and humility
