Peace Pilgrim
A Modern Sage Who Walked Her Talk

YOU MAY HAVE SEEN HER walking through your town or along the highway -- a silver-haired woman dressed in navy blue slacks and shirt, and a short tunic with pockets all around the bottom in which she carried her only worldly possessions. It read, “PEACE PILGRIM” in white letters on the front of the tunic and “25,000 Miles On Foot for Peace” on the back. She walked the 25,000 miles and continued her walk, for her vow was, “I shall remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food.”

She walked without a penny in her pockets and was not affiliated with any organization. She walked as a prayer and as a chance to inspire others to pray and work with her for peace. She spoke to individuals along the way, to gatherings such as church groups or college groups, through newspapers, magazines, radio, television -- relating interesting and meaningful experiences, discussing peace within and without. She felt many have learned that war is not the way to peace -- that security does not lie in stockpiles of bombs; that this is a crisis period in history, and that we who live in the world today must choose between a nuclear war of annihilation and a golden age of peace.

Based on the book, PEACE PILGRIM: Her Life and Work in Her Own Words, from Ocean Tree Books. Over 500,000 copies in print, in 7 languages worldwide.
