Join Nancy Ferrari and her special guest, author, Kurt Koontz, author of “A Million Steps” on The Nancy Ferrari Show on Tuesday, February 11th, 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET on W4CY Radio.
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. As he walked the 1300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his life. Recorded in his journal, emails home and over 3000 photographs become the basis for his first book.
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, Kurt also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery and love. With humor 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 an inspirational journey within a journey all the way to the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela and beyond.
He lives and writes on a tree-lined creek in Boise, Idaho. There is more about Kurt here: www.kurtkoontz.com
