    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!!

    I purchased this book because of my interest in the Walk of St. James. I've heard wonderful stories about this pilgrimage and hope to do it myself one day. After looking through this book, I can't wait. The photography is wonderful, the writing informative. Whether you're looking for a good picture book or just a new coffee table book - this book is for you!
