The latest book from a Best-Selling Amazon author and completely free to download.

Adventure addict Keith Foskett adores travel and the outdoors. A veteran of El Camino de Santiago in Spain, the Pacific Crest, Appalachian Trail and more, he follows a different lifestyle. Adventure and chasing dreams come first, convention and acceptance are second.
In this book he shares a collection of trips, thoughts and observations from his award-winning blog. From the extremes of the New Mexico wilderness to his beloved South Downs in England, he observes the world with clarity, hope, daydreams and humour.
With tales of local history, the changing of the seasons, facing death and pursuing his chosen path, this is a glimpse into one man’s unfaltering passion to follow his dreams.

About the author.

Keith Foskett has hiked over 10,000 miles in recent years and holds a deep respect for our outdoor spaces.
He has written several Amazon best-selling books and contributes to various outdoor publications. Two of his books have been short-listed for outdoor book of the year by The Great Outdoors magazine, and his blog was voted outdoor blog of the year by the Go Outdoors group.
Partial to a decent bottle of Rioja, he nurtures an unhealthy interest in down sleeping bags and woollen underwear.
He was born and still lives in south-east England.

"For hikers, campers, and outdoorsmen, you will find a kindred spirit in these pages. "

Reviewer: .

In his life, Keith estimates he has hiked nearly 12,000 mile, including one thousand mile hikes, and he shares stories from those walks here.

I can’t fault the presentation, and the writing makes it an interesting book if not a gripping one. Less bears, and more broken maps, pneumonia (in the desert, blisters, and vanishing hostel reservations, this book really is one for hikers and lovers of the great outdoors. There’s a fair bit of hiking philosophy and thoughts on life here too.

While he doesn't give details or maps of his exact routes, he does name them which is enough for other hikers to look up the trails he has travelled. While he loves the South downs near his home, the trails he walks are international, and there are stories here from Europe and the US among others.

All profits from the paperback edition are being donated to Mountain Rescue, a nice touch.

For hikers, campers, and outdoorsmen, you will find a kindred spirit in these pages. For anyone considering those pursuits, I’d suggest reading this first as it can be eye-opening.

I absolutely adore travel stories and this one sounds interesting and with problems that all hikers can relate to. I for one have never dealt with a bear attack but I know the pains of blisters and damaged maps. I can't wait to give this a read.
