'John Ure approaches pilgrimage from the viewpoint of adventure and travel via a wide spectrum of pilgrims - grandees, scholars, social climbers and rogues - and bases his narrative on their own  (often forgotten) accounts: those of Erasmus, John of Gaunt, Margery Kempe, Sir John Mandeville to name but a few.  he brings to life the hazards of the routes: robbery, sale into slavery, Alpine blizzards, parched deserts, plague and even tiresomely mystic companions.'
