Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Work in Her Own Words

Compiled by five friends in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1982 – the year after Peace Pilgrim's "glorious transition to a freer life" – the book is a wonderful collection of her own enduring words. It also includes newspaper articles and comments by people she met while on her 28-year pilgrimage for peace.

The contents of Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Work in Her Own Words were lovingly gathered from pilgrimage newsletters, tapes of her talks, personal letters, interviews, and news articles. She relates many of her experiences, gives examples of dealing compassionately and fearlessly with violent and confused persons, and shares some of her unique solutions to problems. There is timeless wisdom for all readers in her joyful thoughts on peace, prayer, simplicity, and the way of love.
