Drawn Along The Way is a reflection on the experience of walking the famous Camino de Santiago pilgrimage accompanied by the author’s sketches done on the journey.
This ancient route, also known as the Way of St. James, leads from France, over the Pyrenees across the north of Spain, to what is believed to be he resting place of St. James the Disciple's remains in the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Walking 800 kilometres in a month is physically challenging but yields personal insights and spiritual growth. The sketches illustrate different aspects of passing through this cultural landscape at a pace that allows observation and reflection.
Book review by Mark Taro Holmes on Urban Sketchers - "Writing for his annotated sketchbook must have been a way to re-live the pilgrimage a second time. Readers will feel this spirit come through the text and drawings."
" Amazing memento of the Camino - one of my sons picked it up and read it and was immediately inspired to do the Camino himself" - Dianne Barclay, New Zealand
