Reviews for Pilgrimage to the End of the World by Conrad Rudolph
Part travelogue, part history lesson, this is a quick read and an interesting one. The author vividly describes the physical challenges of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela (and beyond that, to Finisterre - the end of the world). More interesting is the way the two-month walk affected his view of the world: the slow progress having a spiritual affect on him even though he was not a religious man.read more
