Pilgrims and other backpackers, here’s food for thought as you walk! Inspired by the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile path across northern Spain, this book offers eloquent messages from every continent, across many religious traditions and ways of knowing. Whether you want to plead for strength, give thanks for nature, request divine guidance, or ponder your life goals, it’s all here. The book features prayers, poems, and song lyrics from fifteen different countries — and the material is easy to share with Spanish-speakers, as most items are presented with translations.
