By: Butcher, Justin.
Publisher: London : Hodder & Stoughton, 2018Description: xvii, 302 pages : maps ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9781473673717.Subject(s): Butcher, Justin -- Travel -- Jerusalem | Christian pilgrims and pilgrimagesDDC classification: 203.5 Summary: "2017 marked three important anniversaries for the Palestinian people: 100 years since the Balfour Declaration; 50 years since the Six-day War; and ten years since the Blockade of Gaza. As an act of penance, solidarity and hope, actor and musician Justin Butcher - along with ten other companions for the full route, plus another hundred joining him for various stretches along the way - walked from London to Jerusalem. This book is the record of his journey: a combination of walking journal, travel writing and pilgrim stories. It's less of a travel guide to walking across Europe and more an exploration of the many strands radiating from the Holy Land and its narrative, weaving paths across place and history, through the lives of Justin's fellow-walkers - and, of course, his own life." - Book cover
