Spanish Steps by Tim Moore
Book DescriptionBeing larger than a cat, the donkey is the kind of animal Tim Moore is slightly scared of. Yet intrigued by epic accounts of a pilgrimage undertaken by one in three medieval Europeans, and committed to historical authenticity, he finds himself leading a Pyrenean ass named Shinto into Spain, headed for Santiago de Compostela. Over 500 miles of extreme weather and agonising bestial sloth, it becomes memorably apparent that for the multinational band of eccentrics who keep the Santiagan flame alive, the pilgrimage has evolved from a purely devotional undertaking into a mobile therapist's couch. Ludicrous, heart-warming and improbably inspirational, Spanish Steps is the story of what happens when a rather silly man tries to walk all the way across a very large country, with a very large animal who doesn't really want to.

Books By Author Tim Moore
Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold, Paperback (October 2016)
Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, the author tackles the 9,000 km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. In this book, he reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension.
Gironimo!, Paperback / softback (May 2016)
The 1914 Giro d Italia: The hardest bike race in history. Eighty-one riders started and only eight finished after enduring cataclysmic storms, roads strewn with nails, and even the loss of an eye by one competitor. And now Tim Moore is going to ride it. And he s committed to total authenticity. . ."
You are Awful (but I Like You), Paperback (January 2013)View all books by Tim Moore
Would you cheer if they sent you to Coventry? Could you stick up for Stoke or big-up Bracknell? Can you handle the thrill of Rhyl, the heaven of Hull or the mirth of Tydfil? The author takes you round all places on our beloved island that nobody wants to go to - our most miserable towns, shonkiest hotels, and silliest sea zoos.
