Here is the best-selling account of one of America’s most remarkable and determined women. Peace Pilgrim walked alone and penniless, with just the clothes on her back, as an engaging and compelling witness for peace from 1953 until 1981. “Walking until given shelter and fasting until given food,” she carried a simple yet powerfully enduring message of peace. She walked in every state, as well as in Canada and Mexico, speaking in classrooms and churches, encouraging others to find the inner peace she so clearly lived every moment of every day.

A few of her friends later gathered her writings and talks into this first-person account of Peace’s experiences and beliefs. Peace Pilgrim is now published in nine languages, with over half a million copies in print. Included are photographs, news accounts of her journey, and a large section with questions and answers.

Here is an American saint who transcended all national, religious, or sectarian bonds. Her life was her teaching.
