From poet-author Scott N. Newton comes a profound collection of poetry and prose. Made available through Xlibris and other online bookstores since July 31, 2008, The Road Less Traveled: A Book of Poems showcases the author’s literary creativity at its finest.
Having gone through so much at such a young age, Newton sees the world in a different light—it being conquerable and that truly nothing is impossible. His transcendental emergence from a four-month coma and subsequent outdoing of the diagnosed effects of such condition led him to set and break expectations higher than what the average person might aim for. The Road Less Traveled, the poem that lends its title to the anthology, precisely captures Newton’s atypical situation—where few have ever ventured—and his inspired and go-getting attitude.
His other works include tributes to important friendships and achievements, as well as other objects and affairs that made a dent in his life. Arranged by theme, this moving collection will surely hit the readers’ soft emotional spot.
The Road Less Traveled: A Book of Poems will be featured at this year’s Pennsylvania Library Association Book Exhibit in Lancaster, PA on October 24-27, 2010. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Scott N. Newton grew up in the small town of Latrobe, Pennsylvania. As a child, he had a severe head injury that placed him in a coma for almost four months. His doctors told his parents that he would be a vegetable for the rest of his life. The author proved them wrong and went on to graduate from Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. His poetry became an outlet to share his feelings on all sorts of life happenings. This book is a collection of Newton’s inner thoughts expressed in his poetry.
