It's about time, by Johnnie Walker - A call to the Camino de Santiago

With “It's about time” the author has accomplished a difficult task, writing a Camino book that is at the same time interesting for those that never have even heard of the Camino as well as those who have walked many. Short paragraphs explain the history of the Camino as well as practical matters like the Credencial and the Compostela. And it's framed by a foreword by Camino author Joyce Rupp and a conclusion by Martin Sheen of 'The Way' fame. But most of the book is about the inner...

Just purchased my Kindle copy :). Looking forward to reading it on my smartphone on my next camino. Hopefully it will help me understand a bit more about why I am there – again 😃.

Purchased my kindle copy and read it thru in one sitting (plenty of tissues nearby). Well done, Johnny Walker and a big TY to SYates for telling us.

@movinmaggie I just send you a PM, let's see if you can answer there ;-) BC SY
Hi again. I was asking if there was a print version and what the best site would be to order it. I only saw Kindle versions. Johnny had asked me for an article, but I was smack in the middle of a writers conference in Mexico and didn't have the time then, regrettably. Hope you are well. I'll be walking in the Outer Hebrides in late Spring, by then, age 84. Maggie

John you have brightened my last week as I read your book with it’s different take on the camino. As I read it I felt that I could almost hear you speak it (always a good sign of authenticity ) I should finish it tonight As our common friend put it at the beginning of this
stream it really is for both the newcomer to the camino and the old hand, however both your deep experience and sage like approach laced with the love for all things Pilgrim shine through "Well done good and faithful servant”! Hope I see you in 2 weeks time.

Just a little hint for all of you that bought the book and read it - authors like reviews ;-) So, if you have a bit of time on your hands, a review on Amazon would certainly be appreciated! BC SY

Well, I bought it on Kindle this morning and have just finished it.
I don’t read books about the Camino any more but I made an exception with this one... partly because of the author and partly because it was recommended by @SYates.
It is a wonderful book! So few pages but it filled me with joy and wonder, just like walking a Camino!
Absolutely recommend it. ❤

Indeed, it is about time! Thanks for the post, and at once the title brought one of my favourite singers to mind. I have just finished the book, sadly! It is too short...
Here is a link to the song of the same name.
