139E5679-0470-4685-AFAD-4A0E23380812.jpegNew Camino del Norte book launching now!
Available on Amazon in paperback & Kindle

We’ve written a fairly unconventional book about the Camino del Norte that combines our real life experience with practical information about the route itself. We sincerely hope new and veteran peregrinos will get a major kick out of it and it becomes a Camino-cult-classic. It’s a bit dark at times, a bit magical and dreamy, and downright funny on top.


Back Cover:
Preparing to walk the Camino de Santiago requires more than just blister tape and trail maps.

Part memoir, part guidebook, this deeply insightful account combines with first-hand, carefully researched and practical advice for anyone considering walking even part of the Camino de Santiago’s northern route.

Numbed by trauma, Cassie Childers, former coach of the Tibetan women’s soccer team, drags husband James on the seven week, 830 kilometer journey because standing still might actually cause her to feel something. Social anxiety and personal demons lead an increasingly sleep-deprived James from one awkward interaction to another, until he is ready to throttle the next pilgrim he encounters.

Locals whisper that the intensity experienced on the Camino is ignited by the magic of ancient ley lines pulsing across the land. Will a series of disappearances and inconceivable meetings along The Way destroy their new marriage?

The Camino Provides is the ideal companion for one of the world’s most unique and accessible travel adventures, highlighting the significance of the inner journey while providing a dynamic and unconventional account of life on pilgrimage in Spain walking the ancient Camino del Norte.

I have walked part of the Camino Frances one and a half times. I ended in Sahagun in April 2019.

Hi Cassie and James, my order arrived about a week ago and I have to say that the book is a great read. The description of experiences, emotions, places and background to the journey really make this exactly as the title says "a curious guide". I haven't finished reading the book yet, but I felt the urge to say something in appreciation for this publication.

I was hoping to have done some of this route this October, but circumstances conspired against me, so reading this book has certainly compensated for not being out there on the trail.

I'm sure many who read this book will relate immediately to much of what is written, but also learn many new insights, perhaps of things we haven't yet allowed the Camino to teach us.

I wish you both every joy that life can bring and the strength and patience to overcome whatever trials might come your way.
