    BLANCHARD Jane V. - Women of the Way.
    par Bernard Delhomme

    What do you like most when reading about adventures : descriptions about the terrain, the culture, the challenges, the personal growth, the interactions between other adventures ? Women of the Way successfully combines all these elements in a heartfelt and personal recounting of Jane V. Blanchard’s 2011 five-hundred mile pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago—hiking from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France over the Pyrenees to Roncesvalles in Spain, and then westward across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostella. Though Women of the Way is about Jane’s journey on the Camino de Santiago and discussions with women she met along the way, this is not a "chic" book. It is about embracing the Camino. Jane discusses how she prepared for the Camino, the daily rituals in long-distance walking, the camaraderie, the personal changes, and the beauty and appeal of the most popular of all the pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino Frances.
