To Compostela and Beyond!
A Poet’s Chronicle of the Camino de Santiago
Imprint: Resource Publications
“Porras’s sonnets ignite the senses and capture the rhythm of a Camino day. The book summons memories of Caminos walked and anticipation of paths yet traveled, revealing the landscape, cuisine, prayers, and cultural history of the Way of St. James. Readers will feel the uncommon spiritual connections that are awakened as daughter and father make new pilgrim friends together on the road to Santiago.”
—Kathleen E. Jenkins, author of Walking the Way Together: How Families Connect on the Camino de Santiago
“This journey along the Camino de Santiago is a very real journey, and still, a metaphor for life. This diary, presented as poetry, provides poignant glimpses of a journey of a saint, a journey of a woman and her father, the journey of life. It is not about finishing, it is—as we have been told so often—all about the quality of the journey. Here we have the sweet poetic verse artfully interspersed with the details of a tour guide. To Compostela and Beyond! is a pleasant and refreshing work that should both inspire and motivate. . . . This is a wonderful addition to your bookshelf—and your backpack.”
—Christopher Nyerges, author of Extreme Simplicity and How to Survive Anywhere
