I had the opportunity to work with Keith and he has gladly shared one of his bestselling books on Amazon with me. It is such an entertaining book that I can’t recommend it enough.
You and I both know that there are seemingly limitless books in Amazon printed about trips in a different country.
Despite the mountains of books, Keith’s book stands at the peak. It has enthralled me to read through all the chapters.
PS. I am a selective reader so I tend to skip certain chapters or details that do not interest me.
Keith, whose trail name is Fozzie, has written an exciting and interesting account on his trip from Mexico to Canada. He covered every part of his trip seamlessly – the people he met, good and bad, the scenery, the towns he stayed in and re-supplied, his feelings, etc.
For someone who hasn’t been on a thru-hike, it aroused my interest and encouraged me to try it out.
- Candidly written
- Great overview of a thru-hike
- Provided useful tips and guide for beginners like me
- Easy to read
- Engages readers into the story
- Humor included
- One of the people Fozzie met didn’t have a proper closure – leaving you to find out and to bug Fozzie about it
- Descriptions of the scenery were great but would be better to have visuals
Fozzie’s book deserves the bestseller title. Each personal encounter was accurately narrated, putting the readers in the main character’s shoes. It allows the readers to have a sharp imagination of how the surrounding looks like and how the conversation between the other characters went.
For someone who has not been on a thru-hike before like me, I now have a better idea of how a thru-hike generally feels like. The information is easy to digest and I learned some hiking tips along the way.
The best part I love most is how Fozzie met up with other hikers along the way, how they motivate each other along the way and how people of different personality can adapt to each other and form a strong relationship.
If you are considering the Pacific Crest Trail or even curious on how a thru-hike is like, definitely have a go at Fozzie’s book.
