PARIS TO THE PYRENEES A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James

by | Read by P.J. Oakland

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

David Downie and his wife, Alison, embark on a 72-day walking trip through the French countryside on the way to El Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Narrator P.J. Oakland describes the churches, pilgrim monuments, and inns encountered along the way as the Downies' fascinating travelogue follows the ancient Roman roads and pilgrim paths between Paris and the Pyrenees. In a straightforward tone, Oakland steadily delivers Downie's descriptions of sights and historical accounts. He flawlessly inserts French, Spanish, Latin, and English terms where needed. Quotes from the likes of Vercingetorix and Julius Caesar, as well as references to classic and modern literature, add to descriptions and ruminations that will soothe and heal the soul.
