The Walk of a Lifetime

For two decades, Russ Eanes dreamed of walking 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago. At age 61, not old enough to retire, but old enough to know that it was time to make a change, he left his job as a publisher and embarking on a year of discovery, realized that decades' old dream.

"Books on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela are many, but few capture the richness of the experience as well as Russ Eanes' The Walk of a Lifetime. It merits a slow reading so that it's spiritual and human truths might be deeply savored. Russ shares not just details of his walk along the Camino de Santiago in Spain, but the grace that carried him forward and left its mark on his heart forever. I am grateful for the telling of his pilgrim story for it is the story of many." -Kevin Codd

"This account of Russ's personal Camino experience is enlightening and inspirational. I knew very little about this pilgrimage, but now I am inspired to accept, not only the physical challenge but "getting lost" to find yourself. It is well written, with an easy flowing style, maintaining your interest with practical advice but also conveying the real essence of why Russ made the walk. I highly recommend this book!" - David
