Following the Milky Way is the story of Elyn Aviva's 500-mile-long journey on foot on the Camino de Santiago, in 1982, before the pilgrimage became popular. Whether you are a spiritual seeker, an avid outdoor adventurer, or an armchair traveler, you will find this a compelling account of a journey that is as old as human longing and as modern as tomorrow. First published in 1989 by Iowa State University Press, Milky Way was the first contemporary account by an American walking the pilgrimage road. Elyn also did her Ph.D. in anthropology on the Camino. The 2nd edition includes an extensive new introduction that describes changes in the pilgrimage over the last 20 years.
