A walk through hidden Galicia on the trail of saints and scholars. In August 2016 I walked north from Porto on the Camino Portuguese, to Santiago de Compostela. The route that made the deepest impression came just after Pontevedra: The Spiritual Variant, or Stone and Water Route, added to the Camino itinerary in 2013. Its meditative paths led me through a region of lavish fertility; of vineyards and green pastures; of forested hillsides, remote glens and living waters. By following it, I discovered a place of history, myth and Celtic resonance with Ireland. I offer these words from a desire to share something of its wonder and so that you, too, might be tempted to walk its paths. 'A magical journey out of time and into silence, peace and beauty. Bursting with lyrical phrases and pictures.' 'A deeply meaningful book for any Camino journey.'
