I was a bit reluctant to read this book because I didn't want the religious aspect of it to be preachy. But I was interested in their amazing friendship and even more amazing adventure. And luckily it didn't focus too much on religion, otherwise I wouldn't have finished it. This turned out to be...

I wish I would have highlighted some of my favorite passages to share, but I became so engrossed in the story. Lovely book about friendship, love, and not letting physical limitations get in the way of your dreams. I look forward to watching the documentary.

I'm sure having done the Camino myself made this book even more enjoyable but I have to believe someone who had never walked it would also enjoy it. This book is as much about friendship as it is the Camino de Santiago. The bond between these two is remarkable. The depth of their love for each ot...

Several years ago, I took a nine-day hiking trip to circumnavigate Mt. Rainier, thinking I'd surely spend the time in thoughtful contemplation, becoming one with nature, etc., etc.
It didn't really pan out that way. I mostly thought stuff like, "Left, right, left, right--I wonder where we are on t...

I met Justin while working at Point Loma Nazarene University. He is gifted in his chosen field and a wonderful human being as many will discover when reading this book.
This connection and my own desire to someday walk the Camino made it a fast read. This book is less about a directly spiritual c...

I saw this story featured on one of the morning talk shows. It is an incredible story of friendship, faith and healing. The documentary is due out later in the year.
The book reminded me of Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Although Patrick and Justin were more prepared for the trip, there were obstacles t...
