I used the previous edition of the guide when I walked the Camino from SJPP in 2009. If you are only willing to carry one guidebook this is the one to bring as the maps are readable, the elevation charts very helpful, and the book lightweight and well sized for the cargo pockets of the convertible pants all peregrines wear. Instead of the New Agey passages ("The Mystical Path"),
Brierley could have more helpfully added more info about the various albergues or highlights. And the approach route to Leon has been changed from his description/map, an error repeated in this new edition. Otherwise it's the perfect guide to the Camino.

This is a great map book for the Camino Santiago.
Frankly, I think people offering this book for hundreds of dollars are pretty darned sleazy!
I'm making a list and will never order another book from any of them.
Shame on you all!

Instead of getting this book, I would get the author's guide book that covers the same area. The guide book not only has the maps that are in this book but also lists all the places to stay, things to see, and gives brief history of the areas.
