During a culture-shocked exchange year in Japan, fifteen-year-old Lisa Dempster’s imagination is ignited by the story of the henro michi, an arduous 1200 kilometre Buddhist pilgrimage through the mountains of Japan. Perfectly suiting the romantic view of herself as a dusty, travel-worn explorer (well, one day), she promises to return to Japan and walk the henro michi, one way or another, as soon as humanely possible. Fast-forward thirteen years, and Lisa’s life is vastly different to what she pictured it would be. Severely depressed, socially withdrawn, overweight, on the dole and living with her mum, she is 28 and miserable. And then, completely by chance, the henro michi comes back into her life, through a book at her local library. It’s a sign. She decides then and there to go back to Japan almost immediately: to walk the henro michi, and walk herself back to health. Brushing aside the barriers that other people might find daunting – the 1200km of mountainous terrain, the sweltering Japanese summer, the fact she has no money and has never done a multi-day hike before – Lisa is determined to walk the pilgrimage, or die trying.

Free Pilgrim is the story of one's man's journey down physical, spiritual, and mystical paths. In his photographs, taken in countries all over the world, he captures the mundane and the surreal, the modern and the ancient, and inspires us to go out and see them for ourselves first hand. With vulnerability and insight, Nicholas shares words and reflections from the heart, and with them conveys the joys and wonders to be found when one goes beyond their natural boundaries and truly starts to explore: The insignificance one feels in the presence of enormous statuary and ancient ruins, the size of which seem to defy logic and reason; the timelessness that comes from walking in the very footsteps of the Apostles, the Aztecs, the Mayans ... paths that have been worn smooth by travellers for countless generations; even the sense of belonging that comes from experiencing our modern world from a new or unique perspective. Whether it is a cultural or religious pilgrimage you're looking for, or simply an exotic adventure away from home, this travel book is sure to motivate and inspire you and get your feet pointed in the right direction.
