Hi David,
What an amazing list, thank you.

The first book we read to do with the Camino de Santiago is not on your list.

Memoirs of a Pilgrim
Footprints on the Road to Santiago by Brad Kyle 2010
First published by Zeus Publications 2010 Burleigh M.D.C Queensland 4220 Australia
ISBN: 978-1-921731-35-8 (pbk.)


We got it from our local library in Swan Hill, Victoria, where we were living at the time but now own our own copy.
We greatly enjoyed the book. We read it first in 2011/2012 and walked our first Camino in 2014.

Also noticed you don't have:

Boots to Bliss by Claude Tranchant 2012
Printed and bound in Australia by Clark & Mackay
ISBN 978-0-646-58587-1 (Paperback)

We also enjoyed this book.

Best wishes,
Anne & Pat

For what it's worth, I've compiled a bibliography of something over 200 Camino-related books in English (either originally or in translation).

You can find it in the Resources section: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/resources/camino-de-santiago-bibliography.785/

If you want me to add something to the bibliography, feel free to let me know in this thread.
An excellent resource!

I would add the collection of essays that my son and I compiled: Talbot, Lynn K. and Andrew Talbot Squires, eds. Following the Yellow Arrow: Younger Pilgrims on the Camino. Wingspan Press, 2011. The essays were all written by pilgrims who walked before the age of 25.

What a helpful forum member you are, David! Many thanks for your industrious research in producing this list. On first perusal, it appears to list all those I've read, several I would like to pursue, and a few that I would go out of my way to avoid.

Wow that is alot of books!!! Thanks, I think we traded posts about the Pilgrimage Road To Santiago. I really enjoyed that book. I am far more interested in reading about the history of the Camino. If you or anyone else can recommend their favorites on this subject I would appreciate it. Once again thanks for your hard work.

Hi David,
Great job on creating and sharing this bibliography. You should consider talking to Ivar about making this a permanent fixture on his FORUM as a great resource for past, present, and future pilgrims. May I ask you to include Terrence Callery's "SLOW CAMINO-My Adventure on the Camino de Santiago"
When I was reading this fun, easy read book last year, I found myself keeping the Brierly Guide next to me, along with my own notes and photos to compare our two experiences. I think both future and past pilgrims will enjoy this one.

Thanks for including my first book. However, I do have a second one 'I Have Walked 500 Miles' if you could include that one too. Thanks, Terry McHugh

Sadly, most books about the Camino are memiors and are quite similar.

I walked all day, got blisters, fellow pilgrims helped, sleeped at an albergue, fat guy
from France snorned. Had some self doubt about going the entire distance, but over came it.
Met cool guy from New Zeland who was into meditaion.
Bonded with my Camino Family.....so on and so on.


Pretty much the same stuff--- repeated over and over again.

When I read a Camino Book --- I am interested in the transformation.
The magical insights, the Easter Eggs discovered, the Univesal Truth and Philosophy,
the metaphores of faith, the walking meditation that brings the pilgrim to the infinite moment.

The inner journey. Not the fatigue or the blisters.

Thanks! That's why I put the link in the resource section, so it would remain as permanent resource. Happy to add Slow Camino to his other books already in the list.

You might want to add Mann, Janice. Romanesque Architecture and its Sculptural Decoration in Christian Spain, 1000-1120: Exploring Frontiers and Defining Identities. University of Toronto Press, 2009.
It is an interesting book, which helps pilgrims to understand the art and architecture of some of the early churches in northern Spain and the Romanesque movement that they were part of. I found the photos and interpretation of Christian art and architecture in Aragon most interesting. I realize that this book interprets what pilgrims may see along the pilgrim routes, rather than focusing on pilgrimage, but it may be of interest to some.

My first book was 'Pray for me in Santiago' by Theresa Burkhardt-Felder. I heard her speaking on ABC radio and rushed out to buy it. Still have it and must reread it .

The only thing I can think of is you may have tried it without logging in. I doubt that since you just posted. I would send a note to one of the moderators or Ivar to ask what the problem is.

I've added the link to the resource description, so if the download button isn't getting you there, clicking on the link should. :)

I've also updated it with the latest suggestions.

Hi David,
Could I ask you to add one more book of mine to your Bibliography? I've just published Sauntering the Spiritual Variant of the Camino de Santiago (https://www.amazon.com/dp/0997941596/?tag=casaivar02-20). I believe it's the only full length book about the Spiritual Variant, other than Roy Uprichard's excellent Stone and Water: Walking the Spiritual Variant of the Camino Portugues.

Poco a poco: we're nibbling away at the Francés. Hoping to go back in 2022.
What a great list! Here's an addition. Note that it is a memoir of three pilgrimages - the Camino Francés, the Shikoku 88 trail in Japan, and the annual Hasidic gathering in Uman, Ukraine.

Done. I should alert you that something may be wrong with the Amazon.com listing for this book. Every time I tried to load or re-load it, I got an error message telling me to try again. It was fine on the other Amazon sites, so I used the information from the Amazon.ca listing for the entry.

Thanks for taking the trouble to do that, David. As for the error message, I'm at a loss. Gremlins of the Internet, I guess.

Thank you for putting together this list. I would love to our international award-winning novel.

The Way: Through a Field of Stars is an action-packed historical fiction that reveals spiritual wisdom from time immemorial—set on the Camino de Santiago

Below is one of our reviews from Amazon.

"A captivating tale that draws you into another time and place with the perfect mix of adventure, romance, mystery, and spirituality. There are fascinating, multi-layered characters that connect readers with parts of themselves and the truth that we are all much more than we appear to be - for better and for worse. I find myself recalling sections of the book as I go about my daily life, reflecting on the spiritual and life lessons the characters learn along their way that I need to learn as well, especially the importance of living in the present moment. The book holds together well as a stand-alone novel, but also sets up the rest of a trilogy I am eagerly anticipating. Buen Camino!" - Amazon reviewer

If you include fiction, I had one published in Oct 2021 by Duet Books, the young adult imprint of Interlude Press. The title is THE CAMINO CLUB. (-:
