Camino Sunrise: Thank You, Readers!

I am grateful for two reviews of Camino Sunrise: Walking With My Shadows that arrived this week via Amazon. Also, I am thankful for my wife Sue’s ink-and-watercolor art. There is rarely a shortage of signs on Spain’s Camino de Santiago. To everyone who has shared our journey: Thank you!

From the United Kingdom: “While reading this book I was transported to the Camino. The descriptions of the people, difficulties and triumphs are so vivid and told with humour and insight. I got totally engrossed in it and could imagine myself walking with the author and his wife. They would be such entertaining companions. Great read.”

From the USA: “I’ve lived vicariously for years reading others’ adventures hiking the Camino. This book was my favorite! Down to earth, funny, moving, heartfelt, loved it, felt like I was taking the journey along with the author. I would definitely read other books he writes.”

Our adventures on Scotland’s West Highland Way, the Alps’ Tour du Mont Blanc, Italy’s Way of St. Francis, and England’s South West Coast Path are getting closer to publication. Stay tuned!

Special Camino Delivery from a U.K. Reader

A fantastic gift arrived just before Christmas in the form of a review from a reader in the United Kingdom: “I absolutely loved this book. I’ve read many Camino books and this is by far the best. So endearing and sweet and I felt like I picked up loads of tips for my upcoming Camino in 2021.”

When I sat on a bench for my first Camino lunch, I wondered if I would be able to walk across Spain to Santiago. I had no idea I would publish a book about Sue’s and my adventure. I am grateful to readers in 10 countries who have chosen to read Camino Sunrise: Walking With My Shadows.

From Amazon USA and UK:

“I am a long-distance trekker as well…Camino Sunrise is an enjoyable and inspirational book and I highly recommend it.” — J. Robert Harris, author, Way Out There

“A beautiful true story written from the heart. This book may well encourage you to follow your dreams and step out into the great unknown world. This book was hard to put down.”

“I’ve read quite a few books by people who have walked the Camino. This book is up there with the best of them. It’s well-written, well-constructed, funny, sad and informative. This book has it all…This book is about so much more than a walk. It’s not just a journey through Spain, it’s a journey through life.”

“A truly great book, made more special by the postscript which tells of the couple’s further trekking and enjoyment of life.”

“This is one of the best Camino books I have read.”

“This is a story about our shared humanity and that life is a journey toward self-acceptance. Part of me wishes that every middle schooler could read this book to understand that it’s not just them, that life evolves.”

“What an adventure! You inspire me…I was traveling every step of the way with you, and feeling every bit of it.”

“The author writes well. Thoroughly enjoyed the read.”

“With his heart wide open as he describes his journey on the Camino, Reg demonstrates how braving a huge challenge can be life-changing.”

“Ultimately, the book is uplifting and full of humor and hope–and unforgettable portraits of the fellow pilgrims he meets along the way. This book would make a wonderful gift for the trekker or would-be trekker in your family–or for anyone who just likes a good story.”

“I have read possibly 20 books to date written by those who have dared follow their dreams and have gone hiking…Reginald’s book is one of my favorites. His writing is upbeat and positive and a joy to read!”

“By the end of the book, I was ready to grab my backpack and drag my own partner on the Camino.”
