More Description

2009 Best Travel Book (Lowell Thomas Gold Award), Society of American Travel Writers

Book of the Year Award Finalist (adventure), "ForeWord Reviews"

It was an idea born while hiking the famed Camino de Santiago across Spain. Two men shared a dream of trekking from Europe to the Middle East on the ultimate road trip. It just happened to be a path walked by thousands of Crusaders, pilgrims and merchants during the Middle Ages, a time when wars, unforgiving weather, wild dogs, and an ever changing cast of weird characters tested even the toughest traveler.

As they say, The more things change, the more they stay the same. Two modern-day travelers discover the truth when they take on that same ultimate challenge to hike the Templar Trail across 11 countries and 2,600 miles to Jerusalem. Throwing themselves out into the universe with bad maps, blisters, but plenty of optimism, they face identical challenges in search of adventure, life s meaning and lasting peace. Proving that even today, there s nothing like a little war to shake your strongest resolve.

With 44 photos, maps and illustrations
