The Lore of the Camino de Santiago

Double click on above image to view full picture

People go on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage for a variety of reasons: religious, midlife crisis, a need for adventure or miracle, to visit Hemingway’s 1920s hangouts, to pay homage to Saint James . . . Author Jean Mitchell-Lanham went for all the same reasons, and then her academic and literary interests set her off on a secondary journey to dig deeper into the mysteries and timeless draw of the pilgrimage.

The result is this book: a comprehensive review—complete with academic, regional, cultural, historical, and religious facts—enhanced by one woman’s real-life journey along the popular 500-mile spiritual trek. As a detailed study of a world-renowned pilgrimage site, The Lore of the Camino de Santiago: A Literary Pilgrimage is now an indispensable read before making the journey.
