9780936034034: Camino Chronicle: Walking to Santiago

Camino Chronicle: Walking to Santiago takes the reader along the ancient pilgrimage trail, the Camino de Santiago, as the author and her husband travel 400 miles through northern Spain's hamlets, cities, arid plains, and mountains. The book combines intriguing historical background and rich cultural stories with the author's engaging narrative to provide travelers with the inspiration and knowledge to make their own journey to the city of Santiago de Compostela and the famous cathedral where the remains of the apostle St. James are found.

Not everyone has the time or inclination to walk five-hundred miles across northern Spain, but whether armchair traveler or active adventurer, readers will find that Camino Chronicle provides a realistic, non-embellished account of what such a trip involves. You'll gain a picture of refugio (hostel) life, learn about the food and wine of the regions, and enjoy reading some of the mythology and customs of the people.

This book was updated in 2014, primarily in the "how to" section, to give the reader current information.

From the Author:

In some respects walking the Camino is much the same as any other long hike: there are both physical demands and mental challenges, but walking the Camino is also quite different from other hikes because of its unique history and its cultural setting.

Long-distance hiking is not just about the blisters and the uncertainty of where you'll find food each day, it's also about the motivation and self-discipline to keep going when you'd just as soon not roll out of bed. But as I was learning to deal with the everyday challenges of where to find shelter and so forth, I took comfort in the fact that millions had traveled along the path before--that anything that is part of the human experience had occurred there: birth, death, war, crime, compassion, bravery, love....It was a strange juxtaposition: my immediate needs and sense of their importance and the knowledge that I was no more significant than one of the millions of rocks along the way (or stars above).

Walking the Camino de Santiago was an empowering experience. I learned that I could set, and attain, goals far beyond what I had ever before considered. And, in the five weeks of walking, I had ample time to consider the oft-said, oft-ignored phrase "live in the moment." I learned that when I followed that advice, the trail provided all that I needed to succeed.

The mystique behind the ancient trail is based on this reality: it has changed the lives of millions.

About the Author:

Susan Alcorn, who took up backpacking at age 48, and wrote of her experiences in "We're in the Mountains Not over the Hill: Tales and Tips from Seasoned Women Backpackers," continues her long-distance hikes. She and her husband Ralph hiked the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail in in sections, completing it in 2010. Susan has hiked close to 2,000 miles in Spain, France, and Portugal on the pilgrimage trails -- including the Camino de Santiago. She climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2007, at age 65. In 2010 she completed the circuit "O" route in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile (Patagonia).
