Bucknall is no ordinary pilgrim. He's a maverick on the move...every stage of his tramp to Rome involves meaningful encounters not just with place, but with people...Anecdotes and adventures are depicted in lively detail, the stories of those he meets with genuine empathy. He takes the reader with him every step of the way. -- Amy Sohanpaul * Wexas Traveller *
