Book Summary

A #1 Amazon Best-Seller with thousands of downloads. The first book from Keith Foskett.

El Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way, is the fabled path that weaves through French and Spanish countryside for 1,000 miles to its hallowed destination at Santiago de Compostella. Thousands attempt to walk its entirety each year: some succeed, many fail.
Keith Foskett thru-hiked the Camino to indulge his love for the outdoors and hiking but it also, unintentionally, filled a void in his life which took him in a completely different direction. Along the way he made friends with fellow pilgrims from all over the world, all travelling for their own different reasons. He was assailed by new experiences and unexpected discoveries - from the pain of blisters and extremes of temperature to encountering kleptomaniacs, fake faith healers and being threatened with arrest in Spain for 'not sleeping'.
This is the story of one man's walk, but it speaks to all who see life itself as a journey and are alive to the revelations that an escape to nature can bring. Written with insight, observation and a healthy dose of humour.
As this book shows, it is rarely the start and the finish that count, but the journey in between.

Testimonials

'A thoroughly entertaining modern take on a well worn Spanish Trail.'
- Spencer Vignes (The Observer).

'Not only does he have astute observations about the people, places and scenery around him, he is adept at translating those observations into words, often making me laugh or nod in understanding. This is a rare talent. Few authors can bring you to this level of understanding of life on the trail.'
- Teresa Dicentra Black (Author - 'One Pan Wonders')

'An engaging, vivid and very personal account by a likeable author of a journey and an achievement that readers will find both enviable and inspiring.'
-Ingrid Cranfield (Author - 'At Last Michael Reeves')

About the Author

Keith Foskett was born and raised in southeast England, amongst quintessential rolling English countryside. It was here that he nurtured a passion for hiking and the outdoors, and this forms the basis of much of his writing work.
Having discovered, and hiked 1000 miles of the ancient pilgrim’s route known as El Camino de Santiago in Spain, the appetite for hiking was fuelled further. All 2640 miles of America’s Pacific Crest Trail followed, and 2200 miles weaving along the Appalachian Trail. He still hikes and holds a deep respect for the outdoor spaces of this world, always looking for another adventure.
He contributes to various outdoor publications. In 2012 and 2015 he was shortlisted for Outdoor Personality of the Year by The Great Outdoors Magazine. His second book - The Last Englishman, was also nominated for Outdoor Book of the Year. His third offering – Balancing on Blue was also shortlisted for Outdoor Book of the Year.
His outdoor blog (keithfoskett.com) is hugely popular and was voted outdoor blog of the year by the Go Outdoors chain.
Partial to a decent bottle of Rioja, down sleeping bags and woollen underwear, he was born, and still lives in West Sussex, England.
