Product Description

Review

My congratulations to Harry Bucknall. I thoroughly enjoyed Like a Tramp, Like a Pilgrim. It s a wonderful book.
Martin Sheen, actor and fellow pilgrim

A boisterous, jubilant adventure
- The Times

Harry Bucknall is my sort of pilgrim. This is one of the happiest books I have read for a very long time. I loved it.
John Julius Norwich

A remarkable story from a remarkable man.
Alan Titchmarsh

Bucknall weaves history, religion, travelogue and spirituality into this gently gripping road trip. Definitely recommended.
- Catholic Herald

He is particularly good on things spiritual.
- The Daily Mail

A great book.
Patrick Leigh Fermor on 'In the Dolphin's Wake'

I very much enjoyed it.
Jan Morris on 'In the Dolphin's Wake'

Bucknall is no ordinary pilgrim. He s a maverick on the move...every stage of his tramp to Rome involves meaningful encounters not just with place, but with people...Anecdotes and adventures are depicted in lively detail, the stories of those he meets with genuine empathy. He takes the reader with him every step of the way. --- Amy Sohanpaul, Wexas Traveller

I am only half way through this absolutely delightful gospel of Harry's pilgrimage. I use the word gospel in the sense that it is incarnational and 'good news', and it has passion. It is also humbling and soul inspiring. Very few books are cover to cover reads but this is, each chapter is well written, humorous, and draws you beautifully one after the other, almost like the footsteps of this pilgrim. The book has a spiritual depth to it, deeply moving and insightful on the soul. Harry describes so many sacred spaces from churches to flea ridden mattresses with the devout eye of a pilgrim. The reader needs to beware it will stir up the inner self, not necessarily to put on your own walking boots but to understand what pilgrims endured and brought joy. Harry Bucknall does this so very well. I hope his iPod can last a while longer for another journey on-wards. Once a pilgrim always a pilgrim. Thank you.

Addendum - I have now finished the book and I am delighted that it did not disappoint from start to finish, don't hesitate to buy this and settle back for a yummy read. Roland Olliff

Well done Harry. Got my copy at the book's launch in the Officer's Mess at the Guards Barracks (Wellington Barracks) in London. Excellant story telling of the author's journey across Europe to Rome telling us a little of the history of the places and associated people from the places he passed through during his journey from St. Paul's in London to St. Peter's in The Vatican (Rome). Now looking forward to see if he goes back to complete the journey from Rome to Jerusalem?

I am enthrallled by Harry's second book and I am happy ploughing through it. He writes in a manner that allows the reader to become absurd in the tale and it's a wonderful balance of information about the places, people he meets and his mood. I reallly don't "do God" but find myself wrapped up in the whole undertaking, feeling jealous of the experience and obvious joy that the walk provides. A great read.

This is the second book I have enjoyed by this author and he has matured and developed as a writer so much since his Greek Odyssey. It is funny and touching and wonderfully informative. One shares his aching feet, his wonderment at the glory of the buildings he describes so eloquently and ultimately the joy and triumph of his arrival in Rome.

A personal journey with plenty of European history along the way. Not a pilgrimage in the overt sense but an incentive to those who may feel motivated to continue the search. A light touch to his writing which is pleasing.
