Inspired by walking the famous Camino de Santiago, teacher and travel writer Denise Fainberg and companion Patrick Roberts undertook to walk one of the ancient pilgrimage routes running across France toward the same shrine of St. James in northwestern Spain. Walking through Sunflowers: across Deepest France on the Road to Compostela is the account of their journey. Their path leads from the mountainous Auvergne to the high limestone plateaus and fertile river valleys of Quercy; to jewels of Romanesque architecture at the many traditional shrines along the way; through the vineyards and rich farmland of Aquitaine; and over the Pyrenees to Spain. The motley parade of modern pilgrims, the thousand-year history of the path and its artistic and spiritual heritage combine with the seductive environment of southern France to leave an indelible impression on body and soul.
