Book Description: Enjoy a vicarious walk with the author along the Camino Francés. 500miles across Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela from St. Jean Pied de Port nestled in the foothills of the French Pyrenees. The book is a record of his journey, essentially in sketches; all made insitu as he walked, 147 of them, with anecdotes from along the Way, it’s aches and pains, blisters, laughter and pathos. He met wonderful people, passed through historic villages, admired ancient churches, enjoyed some splendid Cities, marvelled at magnificent Cathedrals, and revelled in all too brief friendships as he passed along the moving community that is the Way. This book will be enjoyed by armchair travellers, those who plan to walk the Camino, those who have walked the Camino, those who dream of, but know they may not, or never will, and those who love Spain.

The art is soft and sensual, and displays the larger woman in tasteful relaxed poses that are at times dreamlike in form.
