WALKING WITH ABEL Journeys with the Nomads of the African Savannah

by | Read by Elisabeth Rodgers

Biography & Memoir • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Many people (including me) listen to audiobooks to recapture the intimate pleasure of being read to by a parent or friend. No one makes that connection better than Elisabeth Rodgers. Her rich alto is almost hypnotic as she tells the story of Fulani nomads moving across the Sahel in Mali, embodying ancient traditions in a world transformed by climate change and war. The author becomes a member of a Fulani family, living for a season enmeshed in their comings and goings. As a narrative about traditional nomadic people, the story can seem formless as time turns in on itself in a life of cycles. Rodgers masters the pronunciation of the Sahel and the Fulfulde languages. This is a wonderful audiobook for anyone interested in North Africa. F.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
