By Katie Alvord
Katie Alvord uses her Bike Friday to maintain a car free existance and has written a book on how you too can live without the need for cars. This is a very well researched and well writen book from a person who lives the life she describes. To promote her book she traveled the country on her Bike Friday using trains and buses. One of the remarkable things about this book is that it is not a meandering rant of some crazed extremist. Katie is educated, married and lives in frigid Upper Michigan with her family. In this book she addresses the concerns of normal people who have kids who need to get to soccer practice in thick traffic when there's ice on the ground. This is a book for everyone.
