Two Bears on the Camino de Santiago
by Constance Anne Barlow

Barcelona is a polar bear stuffie who goes on the Camino Frances pilgrimage with her grandmother. They start at St. Jean Pied de Port in France and eventually end at Santiago de Compostela in Spain, a total of almost 800 kms. A few days into their pilgrimage, Barcelona gets separated from her grandmother. Alone and afraid, she soon meets an old brown bear stuffie named Florence, who has devoted herself to helping pilgrims in need. Florence invites Barcelona to walk with her in search of her grandmother. Together they help pilgrims along the way, make new friends, and have an unexpected, scary experience. Barcelona es una osa polar que va en la peregrinación del Camino Frances con su abuela. Comienzan en St. Jean Pied de Port en Francia y finalmente terminan en Santiago de Compostela en España, un total de casi 800 kms. A pocos días de su peregrinación, Barcelona se separa de su abuela. Sola y asustada, pronto conoce a un viejo relleno de oso pardo llamado Florencia, que se ha dedicado a ayudar a los peregrinos necesitados. Florencia invita a Barcelona a caminar con ella en busca de su abuela. Juntos ayudan a los peregrinos en el camino, hacen nuevos amigos y tienen una experiencia inesperada y aterradora.
