The Authentic Path: 1,000 Miles of Adventure Along the Ancient Camino de Santiago


Plagued by career and relationship failures, at age thirty-one, Ryan Ray yearns for a life of deeper purpose. In a last-ditch effort, he quits his job, cashes in his last frequent-flier miles, and boards a one-way flight bound for Europe. With virtually no money and literally no way home, Ryan pins all his hopes on the Camino de Santiago: a thru-hiking challenge steeped in a millennia-old reputation of magic and miracles.

Despite his optimism, the physical demands of the trek quickly overwhelm him. Ryan’s morale crumbles and he collapses beside the trail. With his future hanging in the balance, the Camino leads him to another pilgrim who has also traveled from overseas in search of answers. Despite their differences, the two bond like brother and sister and instantly become each other’s lifeline for the path ahead.

Join Ryan and the international cast of characters he befriends as he travels across France and Spain in this hair-raising, hilarious, and truly heartwarming memoir.
