'Should you ever decide to walk as a pilgrim to the shrine of St James of Compostella, I cannot recommend a better guide than Walter Starkie' -- Observer 'He is a happy and devout pilgrim, hobnobbing with priests, pagans, smugglers, musicians, knife-grinders, bag-pipers and gypsies. Fluent in Spanish, his fiddle and his appreciation of good food and wine carry him through a host of difficulties' -- Sunday Times "The Road to Santiago' is a great experience for the reader, and anyone who fails to enjoy its endless store of fact and fancy has something missing in his capacity to enjoy life' -- Irish Independent 'Perhaps Dr Starkie's most attractive achievement is to enable us to see the past through his own observations and experiences' -- Scotsman 'Dr Starkie's book has something in it for everyone, particularly for those thinking of making the journey.' -- Illustrated London News 'Combines extraordinary breadth of scholarship with the romantic insights and picaresque experiments of a born story-teller' -- Michael Jacobs
