Book Details

Women of the Way Embracing the Camino– Learn about modern-day pilgrims, preparations for hiking the Camino, and life on The Way.

This millennium-old pilgrimage attracts people from around the world, not only for religious reasons, but for health, culture, and adventure. Learn why through conversations with modern-day female pilgrims.

Though the book is about Jane’s journey and the discussions with women she meets on the pilgrimage, it is not a “chic” book. It is about embracing the Camino, the personal changes, and the beauty and appeal of the most popular of all pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino Francés.

  • Discover why people from around the world walk the Camino.
  • Learn how to prepare for the Camino, about the daily rituals in long-distance walking, and the camaraderie shared among these modern-day pilgrims.
  • Visualize the beauty of northern Spain through Jane’s vivid descriptions.
  • Understand why so many people embrace the Camino.

Jane first heard about the pilgrimage from Shirley MacLaine's The Camino: A Journey of the Spirit. After reading the book she wondered why a 60-year old woman would want to take such an arduous journey. Twenty years later and at age 60, Jane set out to do the same. Returning from the life-changing event, Jane was moved to write the book as a tribute to the women she met on the Way.

Though the Camino was Jane's first long walk, she was not a novice hiker. While living in New England, she climbed twenty of the forty 4,000 ft peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and hiked many of the lower trails. Jane was also physically fit, but had to learn to pace herself for walking long distances each day. The book is filled with lessons she learned and what the Camino taught her.
