It’s Solved By Walking!
Why would anyone in their right mind choose to walk 500 miles across a far-away country over mountain ranges, dark forests, and barren lands, through rains, searing sun, and a white-out blizzard with nothing but hemorrhaging tendons, severe blisters, and daily aches and pains to show for it?
Truth is, we are wired for long walks and thinking time. Restless souls across the religious spectrum, dating back 2000 years before Christ, have practiced pilgrimage in search of a greater understanding about themselves, and life. But for some unknown reason pilgrimage is largely foreign to us today. Henry David Thoreau believed walking constituted a sovereign remedy for most of life’s problems. “Solvitur ambulando,” it is solved by walking.
Join journalist and storyteller, Steve Watkins, as he shares in refreshingly insightful and transparent voice his forty-day account and the life lessons learned while walking a million and a half steps on one of the world’s most ancient Christian pilgrimages — the Camino de Santiago.
Coming Your Way Later This Year
The King of Highbanks Road is a uniquely blended story woven around relationship, culture, place and time. It’s the story of a father and son and their repeated attempts to connect over forty years. But it also examines both the difficult and life-changing dynamics of growing up during a time known as the US Farm Crisis, and a way of rural life that died because of it.
For author Steve Watkins, the book is an experience about probing deeply into family, way of life and understanding what drives you as an adult. Through it all, he said, it has been an experience of learning to love home again.
