Walking the Camino de Santiago by Bethan Davies and Ben Cole.
Linda and I found this to be an excellent guidebook for the Camino Frances, with just the right amounts of accurate, useful, entertaining, and educational material. The general site, Pili Pala Press also contains a good deal of practical information about the camino.

The Camino

A fun, personal site with 100's of pictures of the trail and many useful tips for walkers.
Xacobeo 2004
The official site of the Galician Government, the last region on the caminos and where Santiago is. The most comprehensive resource describing all of the many camino routes to Santiago with loads of historical information. Also contains event information such as concerts, etc. available in Santiago. Several of the Albergues along the trail have kiosks which show this site.
