To the Field of Stars
Seeking to take stock of his life, Kevin Codd set out in July 2003 on a pilgrimage that would profoundly change his life. To the Field of Stars tells the fascinating story of his unusual spiritual and physical journey on foot across Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the traditional burial place of the apostle James the Greater. Each brief chapter chronicling Codd's thirty-five-day trek is dedicated to one or two days on the road. Codd shares tales of other pilgrims, his own changes of perspective, and his challenges and triumphs along the way -- all told with a disarming candor.

"Without a doubt, one of the best Camino books I have read since I've begun my literary pilgrimage a year ago. Kevin A. Codd invites us to walk along with him on the 1,000-year-old pilgrimage that is the Camino de Santiago, more specifically, the Camino Frances route which begins its 500-mile trek from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port at the foot of the Pyrenees in southeastern France and stretches across northwestern Spain to Santiago de Compostela." - Jeff
"I had the pleasure of reading this before my first Camino in 2012 and it helped me prepare both spiritually and mentally for my walk. After reading it, I had the deep desire of walking the Camino with a priest but figured that was highly improbable. Santiago was generous and after Leon sent me a priest named James which is English for Santiago. Rereading this book, after three Caminos, it brings alive the memories and the spirit the Camino. It reminds me of my good friend in northwest Spain, St. James."
