    DescriptionA comprehensive guide to walking the 740km Way of St James Pilgrim Road from Le Puy-en-Velay in central France to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the Pyrenees. This is the first volume of the only guide to the whole route written in English, in a second edition completely rewalked and updated in time for the next Holy Year in 2010. A companion volume, The Way of St James (Pyrenees-Santiago-Finisterre), continues the route through Spain from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostella (or Finisterre). As well as giving step by step directions the book also provides information on places to visit along the way, the history of the pilgrimage and details of the facilities such as shops, bars, restaurants and accommodation. An outline of the route along the Cele valley (53km) is also included and, new to this second edition, route descriptions from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Pamplona and also St Palais to Irun to join the Camino del Norteand. Unlike existing guides (in any language), a comprehensive listing of St James and other pilgrim references along the way is provided and there are also suggestions for further reading and a glossary of geographical and other useful terms.
