Product description

Amazon Review

Known as the "Camino," the ancient road to Santiago de Compostela is a famous pilgrimage trek taken by people for centuries across northern Spain. It is said, by some, that this 500-mile path lies directly under the Milky Way and that it reflects the energy of the star systems above it. Facing her seventh decade of life on earth, writer and actor Shirley MacLaine decided to take this fascinating trek. She wasn't sure why, she only knew that the Camino had been travelled for thousands of years by "saints, sinners, generals, misfits, kings and queens". Her motivation was that doing the trek would help "to find one's deepest spiritual meaning and resolutions regarding conflicts in Self".

Typical of MacLaine, this is a personal story with enormous adventure, a smattering of flashbacks, and a hefty serving of cosmic revelations. Like a true pilgrim, MacLaine travels solo, willing to strip herself down to the backpacking essentials and find deeper meaning in all the bizarre, frightening, and coincidental events she encounters along the way. It is no small feat that this sixtysomething woman walked this gruelling path in 30 days. Readers can expect vivid stories of stalking paparazzi, icy showers, bouts of hunger, lost paths, a worshipping young man, a deranged woman screaming in a roadside shelter, saintly truck drivers, a fellow pilgrim in a wheelchair, bouts of constipation and diarrhoea, and a cosmic crescendo that will knock the socks off MacLaine's fans. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
