Camino...Frances?

Hello,

I'm planning on walking the Camino in the middle of August. The heat doesn't bother me, as I plan to bring a tent and a thin sleeping bag. I have never walked the camino, however, and I would like to know a few things:

1. I am Walking from Germany. I think I can find my way to Veselay fairly easily, but from there, I don't know. What guidebook/map book do you recommend for me to get for the way from Veselay to Santiago?

2. Do the refugios cost anything? I have not found anything saying they do or don't.

3. I mentioned it above, but I really just want a good book of maps, scaled to walking distance. Where would I get that?


Thanks in advance for any help.

Brian.
