Welcome to Green Frigate

Titles published under the Green Frigate Books imprint aim to explore the horizons of the natural and built environments, and the relations of humans within them. The goal of the imprint is to reach its readership by producing works that fall in the cracks between those offered by traditional academic and popular presses. Specific categories include ‘Design, Interiors and Architecture’ and ‘The natural and built environments’. In common with Libri Books, the imprint should be of interest particularly for members of ‘communities of practice’ in the natural and built environments.

Ultreia! Onward!

Pilgrims struggling toward Santiago de Compostela in medieval times would shout in chorus “E ultreia! E suseia! Deus aia nos! (Onwards! Upwards! God help us!) as encouragement to keep moving ahead when facing burdensome difficulties. Today, with the renewed and increasing popular interest in “El Camino,” modern pilgrims facing fatigue and discomfort still require such motivation to continue their forward progress. In this compilation of over two hundred quotations drawn from over thirty contemporary sources, editor Robert L. France offers new equivalents to the old pilgrims’ rallying cry. These quotations, arranged in sequence to be read at specific breaks during each day’s walk on pilgrimage, should serve to revive strength and enthusiasm and thus help inspire those wearing the scallop shell to achieve their physical goal of “hugging the apostle” upon reaching Santiago de Compostela. The quotations are equally enjoyable for those unable to travel, as they extol the beauty of the Spanish and French countryside and provide a perfect introduction to the process of pilgrimage in a modern, secular world.
