Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino de Santiago featuring Beth Jusino
Join award-winning writer and editor Beth Jusino as she recounts her journey of a lifetime. More than two million pilgrims have walked the Way of Saint James, a long-distance hiking trail familiar to most Americans by its Spanish name, the Camino de Santiago. In April 2015, Beth and her husband Eric, laden with backpacks and nerves, walked out of a cathedral in the historic village of Le Puy, France, down a cobblestone street, and turned west. Seventy-nine days, a thousand miles, two countries, two mountain ranges, and three pairs of shoes later, they reached the Atlantic Ocean. In Walking to the End of the World, Beth shares, with wry humor and infectious enthusiasm, the joys and travails of undertaking such a journey. Her story is also about the assurance that an outdoor-based, boundary-stretching adventure is accessible to even the most unlikely of us.
