When Antonia Malchik talks about the human connections that arise from walking, listeners can hear the warmth in narrator Eliza Foss's voice. Her tone stays personal as Malchik recounts her experiences watching her kids learn to walk. The author moved back to her Montana hometown so that her children could grow up in a walkable place, but the audiobook goes beyond her experiences. Health benefits, the lack of walkable urban spaces, protests, and pilgrimages are all part of the narrative. Even when the scope is global, Foss infuses the narration with feeling enough to let listeners share the author's lament over a lost shared society. Along the path, there's even a moment of Carlinesque humor over the difference between "accidents" and "crashes." J.A.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
