Healing Miles: Gifts from the Caminos Norte and Primitivo 2017-12-13

No permission to buy ($17.95)
Award winning author Susan Alcorn takes us to Spain to hike on two less-crowded Camino de Santiago routes—the Caminos Norte and Primitivo. Visit cosmopolitan cities, remote villages; sample pintxos and sip sidra.

Healing Miles
also has a practical side. You'll learn how to plan and pack for such an adventure, the pros and cons of albergue (hostel) life, and what to expect in the way of weather, terrain, and trail signage.

And throughout you’ll find a larger story—one that’s certain to be familiar to many—aging. The author must confront the issues of her own not-so-young body and her mother’s decline. Doing so is not an easy task, but with her own determination and the gifts from others as well as from the trail itself--she does so.
