A #1 Amazon Best Seller - Thousand of downloads - The third book from Keith Foskett.
Shortlisted for Outdoor Book of the Year by The Great Outdoors Magazine.
Every year several thousand people attempt to hike all 2180 miles of the Appalachian Trail in the eastern United States. Being the first of thebig three hikes in America, it is where long-distance hikers go to cuttheir teeth.
Keith Foskett has another reason. Dromomania, or theuncontrollable urge to wander, has been part of his life sincechildhood. Hiking is his chosen method to placate the wanderlust.
Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters including a world champion juggler, a drug dealer, an Everton fan whose visa is expiring and a sex-starvedbuilder from Minnesota, his experience is far from normal.
Battling a fear of snakes, bears, being in the woods after dark and his owndemons, it's physically exhausting -- as well as a psychologicallychallenging. His adventure weaves a route through some of America'swildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour andreflection.
'Be prepared for great story telling, unique and interesting characters, humour and insight.'
