About the Book
It is not a journey for the faint of heart or soft of foot. People embark on the five-hundred-mile, thirty-one day trek from the Pyrenees Mountains in France to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain for all sorts of reasons–religious, spiritual, physical and personal. For author Kenneth R. Strange Jr. and his wife, Aurora, walking the Camino is about adventure and a lifelong love of Spain, both of which shine through in It’s Your Camino.
Infused with humor, grace, and a reverence for humanity, this is an uplifting tale about overcoming emotional and physical challenges in the pursuit of a dream.
Kenneth R. Strange Jr. fell in love with Spain while still in high school. A former FBI agent, Strange has a thirst for travel and adventure that has taken him to more than sixty-five countries.
