Most of the sites described are Christian, but the concept of pilgrimage extends to New Age and Buddhist centers and, with a bit of stretching, Elvis's Graceland. And a Billy Graham Crusade (the pilgrimage that comes to you). Ogilbee and Riess are generally positive about the experience, conceding apparent failures but noting that sometimes the seeking is more important than the finding. While they are definitely "glass is half full" people, if there is another, more cynical take on the pilgrimage process, they'll at least acknowledge it. And, one assumes, pray for the cynic. Jerry V. Haines Washington Post November 26, 2006
Each site gets a chapter, and chapters are grouped in four thematic sections. Among the places they visit; the National Shrine of Saint Jude in Chicago, the Community of Jesus in Cape Cod, Mission San Juan Capistrano in California, a talk by Zen Buddhist monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh, and a Billy
Graham crusade in Los Angeles (the pilgrimage that travels to you). One surprise; Elvis Presley's Graceland, a place of pilgrimage for many, is also included.
In every case, Ogilbee and Riess present sufficient information about the history of these sites, their setting and feel, and what the visitor can expect. The reader's journey through the graceful depictions of these spirit-filled destinations becomes its own sort of pilgrimage. Chapter notes and suggested resources for further information are included. Monica Tenney Church and Synagogue Library Association November 1, 2006

With gas at an all-time high, it may be time to add a little inspiration to each tankful for this summer's road trip. This book can help the traveler find the spiritual in both traditional and unexpected places.
