About the Author:

Lee Hoinacki is a former Dominican priest, professor of political science, and subsistence farmer. He holds degrees in philosophy, political science, Latin American Studies, and theology and has taught at Sangamon State University, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Penn State University, and, in Germany, at the University of Oldenburg and the University of Bremen.

Review:

“Hoinacki’s account of his 500-mile walk along ‘the way'. . . offers its readers an insightful critique of the modern world from the feet up.”

—Utne Reader



“The constant interplay of past and present gives the body of Hoinacki’s vivid account of a pilgrim’s way a new dimension of timelessness that remains to captivate. There is a haunting feeling that this might well be one of the last ‘classical’ narrations in a long tradition of camino literature—a tradition of which the rich footnotes offer a sampling. Hoinacki reveals his diary from tourist travel during his drive to see one’s own life more clearly, measuring the capacity of one’s senses to grasp the unfamiliar in ways leading to a personal meaning of faith. This, therefore, is also a religious book, rediscovering more profoundly, and following in new ways, practices of classical observances, as part of the earth of the camino.”

—Mother Jerome von Nagel, O.S.B.



El Camino is a thoughtful, moving self-examination of a modern pilgrim. Hoinacki finds, as I did, the meaning of the pilgrimage not in the arrival at Santiago, but in the self-knowledge the journey itself provides.”

—William A. Christian, Jr.
