"Reading Pilgrim Stories is as close as one will ever get to the sights, sounds, anxieties, pains and deeper meanings of the Santiago pilgrimage, short of making the pilgrimage oneself. This is probably the most comprehensive as well as the most vivid account of the pilgrimage ever written. . . . A triumph of anthropological fieldwork unraveling a fine web of cultural and spiritual meanings."--Robert Bellah, author of Habits of the Heart "The best thing about this book is the author's ear and attentiveness. She takes her often confused and disoriented subjects seriously, and in her reporting allows us to glimpse the dissatisfactions and frustrations of the contemporary West."--William A. Christian, Jr., author of Visionaries

The experiences of an ordinary man on the pilgrims path are charted in this narrative that walks along the Camino Francs to the shrine of Saint James at Santiago de Compostela and then on to Finisterre, the westernmost point of Spain. The history of the Camino is recounted, as well as several of the myths, legends, and miracle stories that have become attached and given special meaning to this itinerary. Emphasizing that personal myths are an essential part of this lore, this chronicle also includes stories from the confraternity of the pilgrims, people from all corners of the world who visit this walk for a great diversity of reasons, but all of whom leave having experienced the same miracle that this pilgrimage will play a defining role in their lives.

Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ... A PERPLEXING PROBLEM WHEN they first came to Holland, everything seemed strange to the English children. The gay-colored houses with their floors of blue tile, their queer little fireplaces, and their steep roofs, were very different from the homes they had left in England. They had never seen wooden shoes such as the Dutch children wore. The dikes to keep out the sea, the giant windmills, and the canals all seemed odd. Strangest of all was the language. They thought they could never learn it. But after they had lived in Holland a few years these things did not seem so strange. The little English children began to like the Dutch dress and ways. They liked the canal streets, the whirling windmills, and the Dutch cottages. They liked the pretty, bright dresses and gold cap-buttons which the Dutch girls wore, and wished to dress like them. They sometimes coaxed their mothers to wear pretty lace caps and fine earrings such as their neighbors wore. "It is not right for you to care so much about pretty clothes," said their parents. "Plain caps and dresses are more suitable for Pilgrims." These children soon learned the language of Holland, and liked it almost as well as their native one. Indeed, some of them liked it better, and often spoke Dutch at home instead of English. It was now eleven years since the Pilgrims had come to Holland. In this time many babies had been born in their new homes. When these little ones began to talk, their parents taught them to speak English, but when they were old enough to play out of doors, they heard Dutch all about them, and when they went to school they heard nothing but that language. Soon the little ones were speaking better Dutch than English. This was a real sorrow to the Pilgrim fathers and mothers, ...

Thirteen tales of happiness, heartbreak, and desire from the acclaimed author of Home Cooking and Happy All the Time In the title story of this elegant and insightful collection, a book illustrator meets the man of her dreams and struggles to say good-bye to her old self: the perfect houseguest who delighted in the dinner parties of her married friends and always went home alone. “A Mythological Subject” is the tale of an adulterous affair that arrives unexpected and unwanted, like a natural disaster, but is no mistake. In “The Smile Beneath the Smile,” Rachel Manheim, an ardent and intelligent young woman, must finally decide what to do about her unavailable lover. “A Girl Skating” is a delicate and haunting portrait of the unbridgeable divide between life and art, poetry and nature. The warmth, humor, and emotional honesty that characterize Laurie Colwin’s writing are on full display in The Lone Pilgrim. Each of these sublime stories is a celebration not just of Colwin’s remarkable talent, but of the beautiful mysteries of the human heart. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Laurie Colwin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
