A witty, erudite and spiritual account of the journey on foot from St Paul's in London to St Peter's in Rome.
Harry Bucknall was born in 1965 and brought up in Dorset. Travel has been an indelible part of his life since early childhood summers spent exploring the Poole Harbour archipelago in a Mirror dinghy. Educated at Harrow and the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, he served as a regular officer in the Coldstream Guards. As a freelance travel writer, he has contributed to both the international and national press. Harry's first book, In the Dolphin's Wake, about his journey from Venice to Istanbul through the Greek Islands, was published in 2011.
My congratulations to Harry Bucknall. I thoroughly enjoyed Like a Tramp, Like a Pilgrim. It's a wonderful book. -- Martin Sheen, actor and fellow pilgrim A boisterous, jubilant adventure * The Times * Harry Bucknall is my sort of pilgrim. This is one of the happiest books I have read for a very long time. I loved it. -- John Julius Norwich A remarkable story from a remarkable man. -- Alan Titchmarsh Bucknall weaves history, religion, travelogue and spirituality into this gently gripping road trip. Definitely recommended. * Catholic Herald * He is particularly good on things spiritual. -- Mark Palmer * The Daily Mail * A great book. -- Patrick Leigh Fermor on 'In the Dolphin's Wake' I very much enjoyed it. -- Jan Morris on 'In the Dolphin's Wake' Bucknall is no ordinary pilgrim. He's a maverick on the move...every stage of his tramp to Rome involves meaningful encounters not just with place, but with people...Anecdotes and adventures are depicted in lively detail, the stories of those he meets with genuine empathy. He takes the reader with him every step of the way. -- Amy Sohanpaul * Wexas Traveller *
