Présentation de l'éditeur

Kurt Koontz thought he was well prepared for his 490-mile walking trip on the historic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain. He was fit and strong. He had a good guidebook and all the right equipment. His pilgrim passport would grant him access to the shelter of hostels along the way. But all that, however helpful, did not begin to encompass the grandeur of his external or internal adventure. A Million Steps climbs over the high meadows of the Pyrenees, quests through the unceasing wind of the Meseta, and dances in the rains of Galicia. While following the yellow arrows that mark the route, Koontz also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery, and love. With outgoing humor and friendliness, he embraces the beauty of the countryside and joyful connections to other pilgrims from around the world. Part diary, part travelogue, A Million Steps is a journey within a journey all the way to the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela and beyond.

Biographie de l'auteur

After retiring early from his job as a successful sales executive for a Fortune 500 technology company, Kurt Koontz volunteered in his community and traveled across Europe and North America. He never considered writing a book until he walked nearly 500 miles across Spain in 2012. Those million steps were so compelling that he returned home and began writing and speaking about his life-changing adventures. He lives and writes on a tree-lined creek in Boise, Idaho.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth the read 7 septembre 2013
Par Wolfe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
For anyone planning to walk to Camino -or even if you dream of doing so-, this is an engaging read. I was hooked from the first words. Loved reading about Kurt's insights and lessons learned along the way- the people, the scenery- just enough detail without becoming boring. Doesn't contain lists of what to take, etc but there are plenty of books with that. This was about how the walk changes you. Loved it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Million Steps -- Love this book 1 septembre 2013

The best book I have read on walking the Camino de Santiago. I could not put it down and will be reading it again prior to my own walk on the Camino in 2014. Mr. Koontz completely captures his physical and spiritual journey and writes about it with simplicity and clarity. This is not a day-to-day journal as are so many other books on this topic, but rather an engaging discussion of his journey arranged by perfectly selected topics. A must read for anyone planning to walk the Camino.

Yes, it has a lot of helpful inside information about the Camino. Yes, it draws a great picture of the experience. Yes, it has some historical background of the history you'll be strolling by. But for me, it spoke more to the emotional/spiritual journey.
I'm a middle aged man facing a lot of the same struggles: fatigue, winds, rain, inclines, descents, declines, addiction, inability to enjoy the now, little time to take a breath, engage, get to know people. I feel like I've got my compass back.

Okay, I'll admit that I'm a bit of a book snob. As my tastes tend to run toward British classical literature, I wasn't sure if One Million Steps would be my "cup of tea." But because it was a gift from a friend, I decided to give it a try. I wasn't prepared to find what I found -- a page turner that I ended up reading in one sitting! I didn't expect to feel the need to suppress giggles and outright belly laughs at the antics of the pilgrims on the El Camino. And I certainly didn't expect to weep at the sometimes painful life stories shared by Kurt Koontz. One Million Steps is so much more than an account of Koontz' journey walking the El Camino. It is poignant, expressive, funny story and an excellent read. Do yourself a favor and purchase this book! No matter what your tastes, One Million Steps will take you on a ride you won't soon forget!

I have done part of the Camino but not all of it, so I was interested in reading about someone's experience in doing the whole walk. This book does not disappoint. From the first few lines the reader is hooked. I personally could not put it down for two days! Kurt provides the reader with insights into why he was walking, and what he hoped to achieve by doing the Way. As the writer traverses northern Spain the reader is drawn in to walk alongside him, meeting the different people, all the different nationalities and characters, people who are individuals yet at the same time resembling people we as fellow walkers have all met. We hear about the food, the lodgings, the scenery, and, most importantly, the cameraderie. Kurt captures the atmosphere and friendship of fellow walkers, saying goodbye to them, only to meet them again and again along the Way. This aspect is very typical of life on other long-distance paths in Europe and the US. We even get a picture of the aches and pains of the walkers, hence the need to have the most comfortable shoes. We come to understand and appreciate the importance of the hiking stick, which in Kurt's case is personalized with its own name. Kurt discusses not just the day-to-day happenings along the Way but also some of his own personal insights and realizations. By the end of the book it is clear that the Camino has changed him, as it has the millions of others who have walked it over the centuries. Anyone contemplating walking the Camino should read this book, and, as for anyone who is not contemplating doing the Camino, they will be when they have read the book!
