Books Info:

The Accidental Pilgrim free pdf After one Silicon Valley project meeting too many, David Moore returned to Dublin with too much money to get a real job, and no idea what to do next. The Accidental Pilgrim follows the recovering dotcommer as he rides two thousand miles across Europe in pursuit of himself and the Celtic saint Columbanus - the Roy Keane of the early medieval Church. A bad-ass early Irish saint who wouldn't stand for such ephemeral notions as identity crises, if anyone could sort the craic-loving but well-mannered young man, Columbanus would. On the way to the saint's final resting place in Northern Italy, there are bee-stings in Malin Head, melting roads along the Loire, and instant celebrity in eastern France. A freewheeling traveller's tale with a dash of medieval history thrown in, The Accidental Pilgrim presents an unlikely double-act and a rewarding journey.

About David Moore

David Moore was born in London and reared in Buckinghamshire, England. The child of an Irish mother and jazz-addicted English father, David spent many childhood summers in Ireland. He graduated from Cambridge with first-class honours in English and Dark Age history, and continued his studies at Trinity College Dublin, gaining a masters degree in Anglo-Irish Literature. Entering the world of freelance journalism, his work has appeared in The Irish Times, The Irish Examiner and The Illustrated London News, but like many in his generation, most of his working life has been spent in front of a computer. His employment in the internet industry took him from Clonskeagh to Kansas, where he spent 18 months at Kansas State University as 'our man on the prairie' for his Irish employers. He moved to San Francisco in the middle of the dotcom frenzy, before deciding that he'd never meant to get into technology in the first place. He returned to Ireland to try and figure out what he was meant to get into. He's still not sure, but The Accidental Pilgrim marks one attempt to find out.
