"The Roads to Santiago" (Frances Lincoln, 253 pages), Derry Brabbs takes the reader on a photographic pilgrimage to the famed cathedral, following the routes from four traditional starting points of the journey in France, across the Pyrenees Mountains, during the Middle Ages. Along the way, he shows us what travelers today would see but also Christian landmarks, such as the fortified bridge over the Gave de Pau, that 14th-century pilgrims would have been likely to encounter. The prose in "The Roads to Santiago" can be clunky, but the images and the unusual nature of the enterprise make it an appealing work.

I was given this book for Christmas and it is a very good coffee table book with lots of pictures covering many of the routes in France and Spain not just the Camino Frances.

I have a coffee table book on the Wainwright's Coast to Coast by Derry Brabbs. Interestingly, the chapters and the photos closely mimic the BBC Video Series on the CtoC with Alfred Wainwright.
His photographs are superb!
