Description
Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, andhealth crises David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk acrossFrance to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue Saint-Jacques then trekking 750miles south to Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes 72 days onRoman roads and pilgrimage paths—a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading tothe sanctuary of Saint James the Greater. It is best known as El Camino deSantiago de Compostela—“The Way” for short. The object of any pilgrimage is aninward journey manifested in a long, reflective walk. For Downie, the inwardjourney met the outer one: a combination of self-discovery and physicalregeneration. More than 200,000 pilgrims take the highly commercialized Spanishroute annually, but few cross France. Downie had a goal: to go from Paris tothe Pyrenees on age-old trails, making the pilgrimage in his own maverick way.32 pages of color photographs by Alison Harris.
