Peace Pilgrim (1908 - 1981)
An American Sage who Walked Her Talk
From 1953 to 1981 a silver haired woman calling herself only "Peace Pilgrim" walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food." In the course of her 28 year pilgrimage she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America. Her message was both simple and profound. It continues to inspire people all over the world.
The little booklet "Steps Toward Inner Peace" by Peace Pilgrim has been translated into many languages - mostly by people who have been introduced to the work in English and were inspired to share it with others who spoke their home language. Twenty-nine of those have been put into electronic format and are linked to below. "Steps" is not copyrighted and you are welcome to reprint it in whole or part. We hope that in time it will be translated into many more languages and published in every country in the world.
