Author: Paulo Coelho
Publisher: Harper Collins
Here Paulo Coelho details his journey across Spain along the legendaryroad of San Tiago, which pilgrims have travelled since Middle Ages. On this contemporary quest, he encounters a Chaucerian variety of mysterious guides and devilish opponents and learns to understand the nature of truth through the simplicity of life. The Pilgrimage holds an important place in Paulo Coelho's literary canon. His first book, it not only paved the way for his phenomenal novel The Alchemist , but it also fully expresses his humanist philosophy and the depth of his unique search for meaning.
A complete set of maps and town plans in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch and Polish make up this indispensible guidebook for spiritual seekers and travelers wishing to walk the way of Saint James. Covering the sacred route from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, this portable book of maps makes the perfect companion for adventurers attempting to heed the spiritual calling. Revised and updated to offer the most recent information, this exploration is light enough to carry while walking long distances each day. The maps show the location of all pilgrim hostels en route, the distances between villages, and points of interest, as well as counter guides, alternative routes, and accommodations.
To the Field of Stars
Author: Kevin A. Codd
Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
"I am about to share here a story about stars that dance. . . . If the very thought of seeing stars dance piques your curiosity at some deep level of your soul, then pay attention to what follows, for the walk to the Field of Stars, to Santiago de Compostela, is a journey that has the power to change lives forever." -- from the introduction "Pilgrimage" is a strange notion to our modern, practical minds. How many of us have walked to a distant holy place in order to draw nearer to God? Yet the pilgrimage experience is growing these days in various parts of the world. Seeking to take stock of his life, Kevin Codd set out in July 2003 on a pilgrimage that would profoundly change his life. To the Field of Stars tells the fascinating story of his unusual spiritual and physical journey on foot across Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the traditional burial place of the apostle James the Greater. Each brief chapter chronicling Codd's thirty-five-day trek is dedicated to one or two days on the road. Codd shares tales of other pilgrims, his own changes of perspective, and his challenges and triumphs along the way -- all told with a disarming candor. Seen through the eyes of a Catholic priest who honors the religious worldview that originally gave rise to these medieval odysseys, "pilgrimage" comes to life and takes on new meaning in these pages.
I'm Off Then
Author: Hape Kerkeling
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
I'm Off Then has sold more than three million copies in Germany and has been translated into eleven languages. The number of pilgrims along the Camino has increased by 20 percent since the book was published. Hape Kerkeling's spiritual journey has struck a chord. Overweight, overworked, and disenchanted, Kerkeling was an unlikely candidate to make the arduous pilgrimage across the Pyrenees to the Spanish shrine of St. James, a 1,200-year-old journey undertaken by nearly 100,000 people every year. But he decided to get off the couch and do it anyway. Lonely and searching for meaning along the way, he began the journal that turned into this utterly frank, engaging book. Filled with unforgettable characters, historic landscapes, and Kerkeling's self-deprecating humor, I'm Off Then is an inspiring travelogue, a publishing phenomenon, and a spiritual journey unlike any other.

After spending his 20s traveling the world and hopping from job to job, Gabriel Schirm was lost. At 32 years old, he desperately needed to find direction and meaningful purpose in his life. With no physical training, he decided his answers were waiting for him somewhere along the historic 490-mile pilgrimage route called the Camino de Santiago in Spain. From the physical high of crossing the Pyrenees Mountains to the mind numbing rhythm of walking through the endless wheat fields of the Meseta, the route was filled with many challenges. Accompanied by his "guru" wife Amy, Schirm faces setbacks like bed bugs and tendinitis, all in the pursuit of elusive answers. The lessons came from the serendipitous experiences and conversations with fellow pilgrims from all over the world. Sunrises to Santiago chronicles a wondrous journey of personal growth, physical pain, and outdoor adventure while teaching us all to enjoy life's incredible journey.

Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Dieses mit Fotos illustrierte Buch �ber jenen Teil des antiken Camino Moz�rabe, bei dem diverse Wegabschnitte schon von den R�mern angelegt wurden, soll als Anregung f�r eine Pilgerwanderung abseits des allgemein bekannten Jakobsweges dienen. Camino Moz�rabe, der s�dlichste Jacobsweg, benannt nach den im Mittelalter unter muslimischer Herrschaft lebenden Christen, f�hrt von Almeria �ber die Provinzen Granada und Cord�ba nach M�rida. Dort m�ndet er in den von Sevilla kommenden und als Via de la Plata bekannten Jacobsweg, der sich �ber Salamanca nach Santiago de Compostela fortsetzt. Der Abschnitt von Almeria nach Granada wurde von der Asociaci�n Jacobea de Almeria 2012 erschlossen und im September 2015 offiziell von der Stadt Almeria eingeweiht. Der Startpunkt ist an der Kathedrale und der Weg wird durch eine Cama-Muschel gekennzeichnet. Der Camino ist einmalig in seiner Art und f�hrt durch Steppen, W�sten und Hochgebirge bis zum frischen Gr�n in Galizien.
