Narrator Tia Rider adopts an interested journalistic tone to deliver Burgess's audiobook exploring locally grown and processed fibers. Burgess defines a fibershed as a place-based textile system where fibers such as cotton, flax, wool, and alpaca are grown, dyed, and transformed into clothing in a specific geography--in Burgess's case, California--and she embarked on her own yearlong project called The 150 Mile Wardrobe as part of investigating this idea. Rider engages as she shares facts about the humanitarian and environmental tolls of the fast-fashion industry. The more technical information, some of which is included on an accompanying PDF, can be challenging to absorb on audio, but this fascinating topic will inspire listeners to think about where and how the clothes we put on our bodies are made.
