Spiritual pilgrims navigating the Camino de Santiago are offered motivational support in this compilation of passages culled from contemporary pilgrims’ travel diaries. Sequentially arranged and meant to be read during specific points of each day’s journey, the more than 200 entries provide an emotional boost for those traversing the European path but are equally enjoyable for those unable to travel, as they extol the beauty of the French and Spanish countryside and provide a perfect introduction to the process of religious pilgrimage in a modern, secular world.
