Front Cover
Friends of Peace PIlgrim, 1994 - Biography & Autobiography - 206 pages
The silver-haired woman walked away from her name and vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace". On New Year's Day, 1953, she walked ahead of the Tournament of Roses parade handing out peace messages. It was the beginning of a pilgrimage that would last eighteen years. Traveling on foot without money or possessions, with only the food and shelter offered by well-wishers, she carried her simple yet compelling message throughout the United States and Canada. After the first 25,000 miles she stopped counting.

Peace Pilgrim's account of her journeys across America and her spiritual discoveries along the way continues to inspire growing numbers of readers worldwide.

I really like what the Peace Pilgrim stands for and when I was a teen I deamed of
following in her footsteps. I too am wanting to find inner peace. I pray for the
day the lion lay with the lamb
and life is simple. All is free , I too hate
money issues and think humans would get along better not dealing
with it. It just green paper made by cuting trees. Humans place a vlue on
it. Today I am feeling the positive healing energy of the
Peace Pilgrim. I wish to if you need help with outreach
be a silent messenger. I am disabled young lady but
not just a lady but a creature of god wanting to be
free to be me. I hate violence and like to sit still
but I love healing music. I recorded a song
of the Peace Pilgrim I think it is beautiful.
