One man’s remarkable challenge. 2,000+ miles of unforgiving wilderness. Can he escape the mundane to become a thru-hiker? Shortlisted for Outdoor Book of the Year by The Great Outdoors magazine. Keith Foskett’s dream of escape started with a single step. When the long-distance hiker chose to backpack all 2,180 miles of the Appalachian Trail, he left ordinary life behind for five months. Enduring an incredible test of physical and psychological strength, Foskett was pushed to his limits… Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters – including a drug dealer, a world-champion juggler and a sex-starved Minnesotan – he weaves a route through some of America's wildest landscapes and history, and writes with insight, humour and reflection. Attempting to keep his English sense of humour alive amidst the bumps and bruises, can Foskett survive his journey of self-discovery to emerge victorious? Shortlisted for The Great Outdoors magazine’s Outdoor Book of the Year, Foskett’s novel-like tale is as entertaining as it is insightful. Venture beyond the journal-entry style of most outdoor books and join the humorous hike of a lifetime. Balancing on Blue is a superb standalone travel memoir. If you like living outside the box, escaping into the wild, and journeying deep into the unknown, then you’ll love Keith Foskett’s courageous trek. Discover how this wilderness escape can change you too. Reviews for Balancing on Blue 'A highly anticipated Appalachian Trail memoir, and well worth the wait.' Daniel Neilson (The Great Outdoors Magazine) 'Amongst the bears, moose and rattlesnakes, climbing to 2000 metres, and countless aches and pains lives the memory of a special journey, the wonderful people who briefly share the experience with you, and the knowledge that lasts long after the final blister has healed. It’s a lifetime’s worth of adventurous memories crammed into one simple walk.' Alastair Humphreys (Author, adventurer and a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year) 'With thru-hiking gaining in popularity, many look to the Appalachian Trail to test out their trail legs, and discover why it holds the reputation it does. The wilds of this planet are serene, peaceful and offer the chance to break away from a normal existence. Keith’s wonderful perspective of the trail reflects this freedom.' Jennifer Pharr Davis (Author and previous record holder for the fastest ever thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail). 'An entertaining and inspiring account of one of the world’s longest walks and the people who walk it. Keith is a perfect walking companion for the ups and downs of the trail – his easy and understated style kept me turning the pages. Essential reading for those contemplating their own big adventure.' David Lintern (Outdoor Enthusiast Magazine) 'This book is for anyone who's ever dreamed about a big adventure, as Fozzie spins a funny, thought-provoking and inspiring tale of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. You'll be handing in your notice and packing up your rucksack as soon as you've finished reading.' Jenny Walters (Country Walking Magazine) 'Long distance backpacking trips can be monotonous, and it’s often the same story for most books about them. Balancing on Blue is something completely different and once again, Keith invites you to the world that he calls home. Be prepared for great story telling, unique and interesting characters, humour and insight.' Andrew Skurka (Long distance hiker, adventurer and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year

ON DULCIMER STRINGS by Angela Lebakken Some say your past will come back to haunt you. But what if that past took place more than 150 years ago? What if it’s a past you don’t remember and can’t be sure even happened? When Molly Carpenter accompanies her preacher husband to Appalachia, she encounters just such a past. Unable to reconcile her mixed emotions toward this man she’d chosen to trust, she seeks solace at an abandoned cabin in the woods where bizarre events shatter her concept of time and space. Hearing eerie dulcimer music, she witnesses the abuse of a child, Sophia. When Sophia’s mother passes through her like breath through her body, she realizes the scene is not in her known reality. Often, with heart pounding and mind racing, she is drawn into the forest and transported to Sophia’s life in the 1850 ́s. Whether locked in a dark shed, or crossing a rickety bridge, Sophia’s experiences trigger Molly’s claustrophobia and fear of heights. Sophia’s struggles with a traveling preacher offer Molly insights about her relationship with her own preacher – her husband. Who is this victimized little girl? Who is the old codger offering her a dulcimer? And why are they appearing to Molly? Could they be ghosts from the past? Could she, herself, be someone who’d lived long ago? Dulcimer music haunts her waking and sleeping as she struggles to maintain her marriage to Jake, who has become increasingly controlling and deceitful. In desperation and drawing from an inner courage, Molly journeys into the unknown. Apparitions, unexplained music, a mysterious cat, and curses from a faraway land play havoc with Molly’s life and those who have befriended her. Richard, her tenderhearted counselor, feisty Ellen the waitress and innocent Beth, experience life changes as they offer help and companionship. Support and encouragement come from the handsome bookseller, Royce, as they fall in love and struggle with romantic entanglement. Still, Molly often finds herself alone in the wilderness, wide-eyed in the dark. Compelled to heal Sophia’s pain and hence her own, and guided by a Cherokee shaman, Molly’s journey takes her full circle as she learns the importance of confronting one’s past in the present to bring peace in the future. Product reviews: "The narrative voice is engaging from the first paragraph, and there's some really beautiful descriptive prose early on that reveals to the reader that he is in the hands of a fine writer . . . The dialogue is excellent, has the ring of real speech. The author skillfully evokes dialects . . ." --Judge, Writer's Digest International Self-Published Book Awards. I am just 75 pages into On Dulcimer Strings and it is simply lovely. You got me into the story and I’m re-reading sentences because of their power. And uniqueness. What a voice! I’m surprised at every turn. – Gail Morellen, author, No Broken Bones.
