Description

Blisters and Blessings traces the most popular French route of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela from the Basque French town of St Jean, Pied de Port to the great Spanish cathedral at Compostela. As it does, we learn of folk from hundreds of millennia who have walked these paths, particularly the Medieval pilgrims for whom this route was surpassed only by the pilgrimages to Jerusalem and Rome.Along the way we encounter the glories of the Spanish countryside ranging from the Pyrenees to the ocean, we savor the delights of the local cuisine sampling street paella, octopus and barnacles. We learn of the magnificent gothic and baroque cathedrals and wonder at the artistic and engineering achievements of our forbears. This is a book of discovery, the outward journey to the "end of the world" and the inward journey of the soul. Beautifully written, it captivates and inspires us to venture on. show more
