In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and his accomplished actor/director son Emilio Estevez share the stories of their lives while charting a spiritual journey through the Spain of their ancestors.
At twenty-one, still a struggling actor, Martin and his wife, Janet, welcomed their firstborn, Emilio, who was quickly followed by three more children. Emilio had a special relationship with Martin: they often mirrored each other s passions and sometimes clashed in their differences. After Martin and Emilio traveled together to India for the movie Gandhi, the beginnings of a spiritual awakening eventually led both men to Spain. Along the famed Camino de Santiago pilgrimage path, Emilio directed Martin in The Way, bringing generations together in the region of Spain where Martin s father was born and near where Emilio s own son had moved to marry and live.
With vivid, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Along the Way is a striking, stirring, funny story a family saga that is as universal in its rebellions and regrets, aspirations and triumphs."
