Reviews

Walking to the End of the World keeps us turning its pages--an elegant story woven in the seasoned voice of writer Beth Jusino, who shares great insight into her own strengths and weaknesses, relationships of all sorts, and a world view we'd all do well to consider. Among Camino memoirs this book takes its place in the top tier.--Steve Watkins, author of Pilgrim Strong: Rewriting My Story on the Way of St. James
Beth Jusino has captured the essence of this ancient pilgrimage which inspires the reader with detail, wit and spot-on accounts of what it's really like to walk the Camino de Santiago.--Gabriel Schirm, author of Sunrises to Santiago: Searching for Purpose on the Camino de Santiago
This wholly fresh story enchanted me with the cultures, people, chapels, and landscape. Despite the rigors of the Way, Jusino invites us to relish the rhythm of walking and delight in convivial evenings with other pilgrims over free-flowing wine and local food. With the depth of hard-won wisdom, she asks at the end "Who had I become?"--Gail D. Storey, author of I Promise Not to Suffer: A Fool for Love Hikes the Pacific Crest Trail
An enchanting tale of faith, friendship, and pushing your own limits. I'm probably never going to hike the Camino (who am I kidding? I'm definitely not), but Jusino's book had me looking up flights. She may be a novice pilgrim, but she is a master storyteller.--Geraldine DeRuiter, author of All Over the Place: Adventures in Travel, True Love, and Petty Theft
This charming tale is infused with wry, self-deprecating humor and vivid descriptions of people and places that carry you along the 1000-mile trek as though you are there too.--Wendy Hinman, author of Sea Trials and Tightwads on the Loose
Sprinkled with self-deprecating humor and life insights, Walking to the End of World recounts a host of colorful characters, drawing readers into the daily trials and triumphs of a challenging yet meaningful journey and break from ordinary life.--Anna Dintaman Landis, author of Camino Frances: Village to Village Guide
Jusino makes it clear that long-distance trails aren't just for the extremely fit, and that most people -- regardless of their age or fitness level -- can enjoy adventurous travel on foot.--South Sound Magazine
Anyone thinking about thru-hiking could probably use a dose of Beth Jusino's hilarious Walking to the Ends of the World, about her pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago.--Heather Hansman "Outside "
"To date, I have read more than 10 Camino narratives but this book is one of the most enjoyable and engaging accounts of the pilgrimage; a story about a courageous woman and her husband who dared to push their physical and psychological endurance to the limits along the sacred Way of Saint James." -EuroTravelogue--Jeff Titelius "EuroTravelogue "
"The unique spin of this particular Camino story is that [Beth and her husband] walk not just the 500-miles of the Camino Frances, but they start in Le Puy and all told, walk 1,000 miles! Since I've walked a little over half of the Le Puy route myself, it was such a joy to hear more about that part of her Camino experience." --Nadine Walks--Nadine Karel "Nadine Walks "
To hear Beth Jusino tell it, if she can walk 1,000 miles, almost anybody can....find out more about how someone who never identified as an athlete learned to swallow their fear and put one foot in front of the other--and another, and another, and another--to find the strength to walk from Le Puy-en-Velay in Southern France to the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela, and continuing on to the Atlantic Ocean.--Amy Kepferle "Cascadia Weekly "
[In Walking to the End of the World by Beth Jusino] you'll learn about her 79-day journey to Camino de Santiago in France and Spain, and you may be less intimidated to try something similar yourself. Jusino makes it clear that long-distance trails aren't just for the extremely fit, and that most people -- regardless of their age or fitness level -- can enjoy adventurous travel on foot.--Luciano Marano "Bainbridge Island Review "
"Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino De Santiago" by Beth Jusino is a story of real struggle, companionship and inspiration and is the perfect Christmas present or stocking filler for those who feel inspired by walking the way of St. James.--Hillwalk Tours
With clear and vivid writing, Jusino's motivational book takes us on a historical, cultural and internal journey while sharing the joys (those views!) and pains (those blisters!) of walking.--Kim Dinan "The Dyrt "
At the heart of the book is how slowing down can change your perspective. Instead of rushing around and spending a lot of time staring at screens, walking gives you the time to look around, get to know people--even yourself--and to think.--Suroor Alikhan "Women on the Road "
Beth's story is a testament to the beautiful things that can happen when you stop saying, "I could never do that." And it's a powerful reminder that disentangling ourselves from our responsibilities and compulsions can help us grow and thrive.--Willow Belden "Out There "
For armchair travelers who've wondered if they too can tackle an epic outdoor adventure, writer Beth Jusino shows us that anything is possible.--Virtuoso Traveler
