    Tales of the Caminos is an inspirational parable, a physical, spiritual, and metaphysical journey into the unknown, but above all else it is an internal journey, a going within on a marvelous human voyage through the unending discoveries of the greater self.
    In the physical sense, the author takes you on a long walk to a distant sacred place, to the mystical holy City of Santiago de Compostela. There are actually six of these pilgrimage routes across Spain. The two most popular are the Camino Frances and the Camino Primitivo. The French Camino follows an ancient Roman road running from East to West across Northern Spain. The Primitivo is as the name implies the most primitive and also the oldest of the pilgrimage routes. It is dusty ribbon of earth and rock that for over a thousand years had echoed with the footsteps of countless pilgrims in search of God and spirituality.
    This book is filled with history, romance and adventure but it can also be a guide book for people of all ages, for both men and women of every nationality who might be willing to take a bit of a walk on the wild side.
    With my knapsack on my back and with that wild country before me, the feeling of stepping into some sort of primordial time-machine prevailed. Looking down at the long expanse of my shadow, I took the symbol of the Camino, the Sheppard’s staff in hand, stabbed the soft powdered earth, grabbed the handle and slid the gears into reverse.
