Pilgrim's Way

(1940)
A non fiction book by

 
"Pilgrim's Way. An Essay on Recollection" by Scottish novelist and politician John Buchan (1875 - 1940) is an autobiography of this unique man, mostly known in the world of literature as the author of "The Thirty-Nine Steps" and other adventure fiction. The book narrates his life of public service, his literary work, and his service in both Britain's Boer campaign and World War I, before covering his years in Parliament, and appointment as Governor General of Canada. Of particular interest are Buchan's personal profiles of several distinguished contemporaries.

The book was published in the UK under the title "Memory Hold-the-Door". As a curiosity it can be added as a curiosity that Pilgrim's Way was a favourite book of John F. Kennedy. He was inspired by the chivalrous young British generation, so well depicted in the book, who died in WWI, and he urged anyone who wanted to understand him to read Pilgrim's Way.
