Roads Less Traveled is a collection of life stories -- the stories of some truly extraordinary people. These are stories of talent, dedication, and persistence; of devotion to an art, a craft, or a cause; or simply of a life well lived. These people have truly taken roads less traveled -- indeed, they have forged their own paths through life.  

Hence the subtitle, Visionary New England Lives.  These people are not necessarily "visionaries" in the global or religious sense; they simply have their own vision for what they want to do, and how they want to live. Some have achieved fame or fortune in the process; others have persisted through years of struggle. For all of them, the pursuit, the vision, is more important than the reward. 

I hope you will find these stories entertaining, informative, and inspiring. In them, you can get a sense of the possibilities of human intelligence, creativity, and spirit; and perhaps you'll be encouraged to pursue your own Road Less Traveled.
