About book: If you have been to Aran, or plan to go, or long to go, this book can serve as an aid to memory, an introduction, or a way there. But be warned: the reading demands care and a kind of faith-namely, that walking in circles is not for nothing. And it did perk me up during a particularly difficult mile, as I couldn't help but laugh at what can only be described as self-parody nonpareil. Fond chuckles at the author’s expense aside, I can’t say I particularly enjoyed the reading experience-just as I can’t say I enjoyed walking the south shore of Aran.

After a visit with his wife in 1972, Tim Robinson moved to the islands, where he started making maps and gathering stories, eventually developing the idea for a cosmic history of Árainn, the largest of the three islands. Pilgrimage is the first of two volumes that make up Stones of Aran, in which Robinson maps the length and breadth of Árainn.
