Promotional Information

In this lovely book about an inspiring journey, this 'rather overweight and sedentary 63-year-old man' writes about the enormous challenges of walking across Spain and the rewards he found in contemplation, reflection, and the spirit of fellowship he shared with his fellow travellers. This memoir is a deeply personal journey, but Kevin also ponders the old-fashioned notion of pilgrimage in the frenetic 21st century.' Sunday Telegraph

About the Author

Tony Kevin served in the Foreign Affairs and Prime Minister's departments over a 30-year period, and was Australia's ambassador to Poland and Cambodia. His other award-winning book is A Certain Maritime Incident: the sinking of SIEV X .

Reviews

`While this very personal journey is a cathartic one for the author, his recounting of it also provides provocative and inspirational messages for those concerned with the future of Australian communities.'

-- Warren Brewer * Hobart Mercury *

`Go the distance with Kevin this one: it may well help inspire your own faith journey.'

-- Marjorie Lewis-Jones * Insights *

`Its strength ... is its observant, informed, humane reflectiveness. Kevin's excursions into practical advice alone make the book worthwhile.'

-- Gerard Windsor * Sydney Morning Herald *

`Walking the Camino is like a cold Spanish beer .... [Kevin] takes the less travelled trail from south to north; longer, but a lot more interesting. .... If you're brave or foolish enough to tackle the trip, Walking the Camino, as replete with travel tips as it is with wisdom, would be the perfect partner.'

-- Barry Oakley * Weekend Australian *
