It has been nearly five decades since Shirley MacLaine commenced her brave and public commitment to chronicling her personal quest for spiritual understanding. Now Shirley is back -- with her most breathtakingly powerful and unique book yet.

The Camino is the story of a riveting odyssey that began with a pair of anonymous handwritten letters imploring Shirley to make a difficult pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. Throughout history, countless pilgrims have taken up the trail. It is an ancient -- and allegedly enchanted -- pilgrimage. People from St. Francis of Assisi to Dante and Chaucer have taken the journey -- a nearly 500-mile trek across highways, mountains, cities and fields.

For Shirley, the Camino was both an intense spiritual and physical challenge. For a woman in her sixth decade completing such a grueling trip on foot in thirty days at twenty miles per day was remarkable. But even more astounding was her spiritual route: back thousands of years, through past lives to the very origin of the universe.

With rich insight, humility, and grace, The Camino promises listeners the journey of a thousand lifetimes.

    " The parts about the travelling I liked to read, but the story about spiritual experience I found very vague and strange and not interesting and the story about the press following her I found very irritating: she thinks she is a very, very important person. "

    " One of the first metaphysical books I ever read and was in a book club formed by Lisa Ohhh! THANKS Lisa! I LOVE Shirley Maclaine she is my role model...not the actress side..the metaphysical side. I admire her for being so brave to speak out! A book I will always have a copy of on my shelf! I want to take a group and walk the Camino!!! Any takers? "

    " I read this in hardcover. A coworker (who has since passed away) lent it to me. "

    " What an imagination! The stories she can make up are rather funny. I believe that when she got home she decided to flesh out with trendy new age gibberish a single thought that perhaps came to her on the trail. Shirley is a good actress but c'mon, don't expect readers to fall for anything and everything that she decides to put on paper. "
