Joseph’s daily journal on the Camino Francés is adorned in this book with a mosaic of history, geography, myth and legend that mingles with, defines and surrounds this journey of perennial significance. The hues and tones of the pilgrim’s ardour and emotion and the author’s personal perspectives unify this endeavour into ‘Camino de Santiago: A microcosm of life’
Many stories have been written, and continue to be written, about the Camino de Santiago and Joseph’s story shares so much with the stories of other pilgrims. Yet, it is also unique in its own way. Each of our lives is, after all, a journey and the Camino is in many respects a version of it in miniature; a microcosm of life.
