Belloc's physical and psychological walk toward Rome is an invitation to travel toward the significance of being human. He travels in as straight and serious a line as possible plunging into valleys and deep sarcasm and ascending mountains and spiritual revelations. Belloc is a down to earth traveler who progressively grows more exhausted and raggedier during the journey. He is a real man, walking under a real sky toward supernatural truth. His inexhaustible wit and clear understanding will stay with you long after you have finished his story.
Erudite, witty and opinionated, Hilaire Belloc describes the walking pilgrimage he makes from his native Toul, France to Rome. He describes the places he passes through and the people he meets, with an eye for detail and an appreciation of human character. This in a Europe before the automobile or the airplane. Reading this book causes me to want to make a similar pilgrimage.
