Look for "The Pilgrims Guide To Santiago De Compostela"   Written in , I 
think, the 12th Century.  and translated by William Melczer.  Italica Press, 
INC.  ISBN 0-934977-25-9 for $17.50 if it's still in print.  This is a travel 
guide for pilgrims telling of dangers to avoid and sites to see on your 
      It tells which rivers you can safely drink from and which are unsafe.  
It says some rude things about the Basque.  And tells short stories about the 
many Saints who's shrines you will see on the way.  It's well worth reading.
