I am preparing for my solo thru-hike of the PCT and have read more travelogues on the subject than I care to mention. Of the multitude I have read this Kiwi does a better job of describing the thru-hikers experience than any of the Yanks I have read by far. Refreshingly honest without feeling like the author's shrink was along stride for stride (though the "...you're the one who keeps showing me dirty pictures." was one of the many jokes and quips that made me chuckle and laugh out loud. A sense of humor should be hiking's 11th Essential, and it wold meet ultra-lite weight requirements).
So if you are considering hiking the PCT or just want a very good sense of what it's like, I cannot recommend this book enough.

Just the right length, with plenty of clean humor... kept me interested the entire book. Fun to hear his take on Americans and our culture.
