"The Road to Find Out" follows author Bruce Matson along the Camino de Santiago--a medieval pilgrimage route through northern Spain. Although little known to most Americans, the Camino has gained significant popularity since its rebirth in the 1980s. Historically, those on the Camino journeyed to the resting place of St. James for religious reasons. For them, the trip was a solemn pilgrimage--they were pilgrims. Today, people have a variety of motivations for heading out on the "Way of St. James," but for most, the walk is still a form of pilgrimage. As Bruce explains, "We were pilgrims... We were looking for something. We were on the way to find rest for our souls. We were on the road to find out." This book, then, is about not only the people, places, and things experienced over thirty days and 500 miles, but also Bruce's observations and reflections about the spiritual aspects of such a journey--about the path life has taken, the road not traveled, and the trail up ahead.
