Pilgrimage to the End of the World

Conrad Rudolph, Univ. Chicago Press, 2004

Art history professor walks the Camino on the traditional path from Le Puy in South Central France, continuing to St. Jean Pied du Port and westward across northern Spain. During the thoughtfully written and mercifully brief narrative (given the length of the journey), the author reflects on significant characters and buildings encountered along the route.  There’s a lyrical meditation on the intersection of physical exertion and spiritual growth.
