What readers say about the book
Practical and Encouraging
“My mum has done the traditional “cheating Brit” camino (driving from Santander to Santiago, stopping to cherry-pick a few scenic spots to actually walk). I lack her excuse of needing a cane to walk) but the Frances is both unrealistic to cram into a wage-slave holiday, and probably beyond my deskbound fitness level.
This book is a clear and practical guide to an alternative – recommended both for those dreaming of one day seeing this historic, sacred region, and those actually planning to get up and do some walking.”
Mr Jason Stevens
The most authoritative, short book on the Camino Ingles! Laid out the journey in easy-to-understand steps including illustrations of the route each day and the gradient to expect. Took what could be an overwhelming 140 kilometer trek and made it manageable by providing detailed info on training, clothing/shoes, gear to bring, finding potable water along the way, porting your backpack, where to stay/eat along the route, etc. (author said she had already done all the research for a successful pilgrimage and she meant it!) Final word – Excelente!

Short, Sweet and to the Point
As a writer and editor I’m probably a bad person to do reviews, but this one was easy. Susan has managed to find the right balance between details, maintaining interest, including all the things you need to know, and not wandering off into spiritual or philosophical diversions. I’ve traveled to a few places in the world, but never Europe. This might just help to put a bit more spring in my step. I only found one error: she claimed to be chief among the lazy and unmotivated people of the world, but I claim that position for myself 😉

The Bible to the Camino Ingles
I was expecting another spiritual journey story. Instead this is a clear guidebook to the shorter (144 km) Camino Ingles. This adventure has intrigued me, but being 60+ in poor physical condition, I wasn’t sure I could handle this. This author describes the day to day walking, but the clarity of her information gives me food for thought…maybe??? Then she explains how you can get your stuff from point A to point B without carrying it all.Yay!
Carry this book as your guidebook and you won’t get lost, hungry, or cold. She says to leave your books at home, but I wouldn’t leave this one at home. It’s basically the Bible to the Camino Ingles. You’ll be happy you had this one with you.
