Summary

A real-life adventurer. A gruelling pan-American trek. Will one Englishman dare to face his fears?

Short-listed for Outdoor Book of the Year by The Great Outdoors magazine.

Born traveller Keith Foskett had thousands of miles of thru-hiking experience when he prepared for his toughest challenge yet: a gruelling 2,640-mile hike from Mexico to Canada. In a six-month journey along America's Pacific Crest Trail, he crossed the arid expanses of California's deserts, the towering peaks of Oregon's volcanic landscape, and the dense forests of Washington.

Battling phobias of bears, snakes, critters and camping in the woods after dark, can Foskett find new ways to achieve his ultimate goal when the worst winter in years bears down on the trail?

Shortlisted for The Great Outdoors magazine Outdoor Personality of the Year and Book of the Year multiple times, veteran storyteller Keith Foskett lets you join him for a trek across the greatest long-distance hiking trail on Earth. With witty humour, astute observations, and a delightful cast of characters, you'll discover a compelling narrative that turns the travelogue formula on its head.

The Last Englishman is an extraordinary travel memoir by an experienced long-distance hiker. If you believe there's more to life than work, yearn for new horizons and challenges, and believe in overcoming adversity, then you'll love Keith Foskett's tale of exploration.
