One day she noticed an overgrown and obviously ancient pathway alongside her garden. After some research, Susie discovered that this track is part of the centuries old Pilgrims path to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, and has been walked by countless seekers and travellers since the Middle Ages. Eventually, curiosity getting the better of her, she decided to make the journey herself. On her own, on foot and all the way to Santiago.Join Susie on her own pilgrimage as she explores the wonders and pitfalls of Mediaeval French and Spanish towns, enjoys good food and generous hospitality--but endures more often the privations of life as a pilgrim--sobs into her sodden walking boots, fends off the amorous advances of a nonagenarian farmer, meets philosophers, jokers and mind-numbing bores, walks in rain and in sunshine and finds through it all the spirituality and peace inherent in this ancient path, arriving six weeks later, weary but exhilarated in Santiago, to find that her life will never be the same again.

Evocatively illustrated throughout by David Dry RIBA.
