Walking

This is a promotion poster for Born To Walk, The Transformative Power of the Pedestrian Act, by Dan Rubinstein. I have it on hold at the library where it's "on order".

Dan is a Canadian journalist, storyteller and a keen walker and blogger. Here's a short trailer for the book which was released in April 2015.



 In case you're wondering, as I was, the drum circle footage that bookends the trailer is from a walk that Dan joined that's part of a multi-year walking project led by Innu surgeon Dr. Stanley Vollant. 

You can read about that experience here: thewalrus.ca/the-walking-cure. Vollant, is, in fact, currently leading a group that's walking to Kuujjuaq, on Ungava Bay: www.innu-meshkenu.com/en/
