Narrator Keith Sellon-Wright's leisurely, thoughtful pace is a good fit for this slow-moving account of a family of songbirds. When the author was a child, his mother read him Edwin Way Teale's NORTH WITH THE SPRING, a classic of American nature writing published in 1951. The book inspired Beehler to make his own epic three-month journey from coastal Texas to Canada to follow the spring migration of wood warblers. As he shadows these colorful but inconspicuous songbirds on their remarkable journey, Beehler shares facts about their lives and chats with those who work to protect the fragile species. Sellon-Wright's gentle, avuncular tone is pleasant, though there is little narrative to engage anyone other than the hard-core birder. D.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
