"Pilgrim Strong: Rewriting My Story on the Way of St. James"

Mar 16, 2018

It's been commonly noted that we as human beings are basically hard-wired for long walks -- and for the thinking, observation, and spiritual reflection that always comes with such walks. Henry David Thoreau, for example, believed that walking alone through the woods was in itself a remedy for most of life's problems. Another such person might be the journalist and storyteller Steve Watkins, who's our guest on ST. In his new book, "Pilgrim Strong: Rewriting My Story on the Way of St. James," we find an insightful memoir about what Watkins learned while walking a million and a half steps on one of the world's most ancient routes of pilgrimage: the Camino de Santiago. Please note that Watkins will speak about this book tonight (the 14th) at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa.
