Paris to the Pyrenees

Paris to the Pyrenees

by David Downie

  • TRAVEL NARRATIVE
  • 2013
  • HARD COVER
  • 352 PAGES

Downie chronciles his trek, with wife Alison Harris on the Rue Saint-Jacques, 750 miles across Burgundy and France to Roncesvalles in the Spanish Oyrenees.-- a 72 day adventure on Roman roads and pilgrimage paths leading, ultimately, to Santiago de Campostelo. As much a meditation on history and on what it means to be French as a traveler's account (though it has that too), David Downie's spirited book is haunted by the Gallic chieftain Vercingetorix (say that 10 times fast!) and the Gallo-Roman forbears of modern France.  (FRA41, $27.95)
