Garry McDougall 

As a veteran of the countless Camino's, I have written eight or nine books on my experiences.

Short stories, poetica and travelogue.

I have been inspired by pilgrim enthusiasm, and their fraternal spirit. Nothing quite like it. And the people along the Way, in its villages and alberges have a long history and tradition of welcome that the world so needs. My books share with you all the themes emerging from research and experience.


Please help out those people who now find themselves in distress.

e-book:  "Blacksmith and Canon"

€ 4.00 - € 3 de esto va a la olla de donación


Archaeologists discover the Viviers Journals, and finally a first volume is published as Blacksmith and Canon.

It’s 1503, contemporary to Niccolo Machiavelli, Michaelangelo, and Martin Luther. Niccolo would soon write the ground-breaking The Prince, Martin Luther's Protestant Reformation lay just ahead.

A blacksmith-storyteller, Louis d’St Martin, brought before a severe Canon-Magistrate, is accused of three murders. But with one insight, and a wealth of experience, he strikes a bargain where only one will survive.

Their journey involves three knights, six archers, the Canon’s scribe, Martel, and a Neapolitan family, including Rosalonda, and the anatomist, Semla. Louis entertains them with tales that offend the Canon but beguiles the others. There’s time for love, music, humour and storytelling amongst the murder, mayhem and betrayal of knights and Canon.Inspired by Shakespeare, Don Quixote and Name of the Rose.
