made for rich pilgrims April 28 2008
By I. Petersen - Published on Amazon.com
I used this guide on my trip from Seville to Merida and was most of the time annoyed by it. The format of the book is to big to put it into your pocket to pull it out when you need a quick look. It was too heavy to really take the entire book with me, so I ripped out the part I was hiking and folded it it to pocket size. I guess making copies would have been the better option. The guides that my German speaking travelers used were much more conveniently sized. Also, the hostals and hotels that were described were a bit pricey and not really where you want to stay as an average pilgrim. I liked the background information though, for example the announcement of a little box with a note book in the middle of nowhere on the path, were you could write a few lines for the hikers behind you.
Over all I think the guide is reasonably good and has good descriptions of the path, but for the actual hiking the format is not convenient.

Great book if you plan on walking the Via Plata Nov. 3 2007
By J. Flynn - Published on Amazon.com
I used this book almost exclusively for my pilgrimage. The Via Plata is an incredible route. This book was wonderful and was VERY helpful. It has daily route maps and descriptions. It also gives suggestions on what you should eat in each region that you walk through. It is very easy to follow and is really all you will need to walk the Via Plata.

An excellent guide June 30 2007
By Steve S - Published on Amazon.com

The first reviewer seems somewhat confused; this is actually a very good guide to the Via de la Plata route of the Camino de Santiago. The book is quite thorough and has proven very useful to us as we plan our trip. Certainly worth purchasing.

Camino in Spain Nov. 3 2006
By Chibi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I walked on Camino Frances last year, I used Brierly's book, which was a great book. Next spring I plan to walk Via de la Plata, which is written by only few people and therefore little information is available. In fact this book is the only book having Via de la Plata in its title, that I can find on Amazon. (Surprizingly "Walking in Spain" by Lonely Planet ignores this route.) However, looking over the book, it is reasonably thorough and helpful. Particularly it has good maps and lodging information, which are most crucial for the pilgrimage.

I will give a try and hope I'll make it.

One star is one star too many July 14 2007
By Marcus Wilder - Published on Amazon.com
I carried this book on my walk from Seville to Santiago de Compostela. Both historical notes and route directions are inaccurate. Give it one star for pleasant writing style.
