New Book on the Way

December 5, 2016

It’s been nearly three years since my last book The Day was Made for Walking. I’ve been very pleased with its reception. I’ve received many emails from readers thanking me. That book was about my physical and spiritual journeys walking the Camino de Santiago through France and Spain. Since then, I have walked two more Camino routes through France and Portugal. These latter journeys are the subject matter of my new book, currently with the publisher and hopefully available early next year. Thanks to everyone who read and enjoyed my earlier books. They are available on my website


The Day was Made for Walking – Reviews

March 26, 2014

Noel Braun is a remarkable man. The loss of his wife signified a great change in his life and instead of dropping his bundle, he devised ways to negate his feelings of grief and loss.

He is a man I would call a hero. He’s not a great sports star, actor or celebrity, but in my eyes he tackled his problems head on and has written of his journey in a sincere and honest way. Reading about his pilgrimage across France and Spain is a humbling experience. 

John Morrow’s Pick of the Week


Author Noel Braun’s prose is beautiful. In his book he pours out his emotions, his life story and his observations of life without reserve and with honesty.

I want to follow his footsteps – light the candles in stone chapels, share the bread and cheese, be inspired by the uplifting wayside graffiti, drink in the wonder, and rejoice at the tapestry of nature and resilient human spirit.

If any reader is not inspired by this book, by  this man’s humble and amazing achievements – you’re probably dead already.
