It was already hard upon October before I was ready to set forth, and at the high altitudes over which my road lay there was no Indian summer to be looked for. I was determined, if not to camp out, at least to have the means of camping out in my possession; for there is nothing more harassing to an easy mind than the necessity of reaching shelter by dusk, and the hospitality of a village inn is not always to be reckoned sure by those who trudge on foot. A tent, above all for a solitary traveller, is troublesome to pitch, and troublesome to strike again; and even on the march it forms a conspicuous feature in your baggage. A sleeping-sack, on the other hand, is always ready-you have only to get into it; it serves a double purpose-a bed by night, a portmanteau by day; and it does not advertise your intention of camping out to every curious passer-by. This is a huge point. If a camp is not secret, it is but a troubled resting-place; you become a public character; the convivial rustic visits your bedside after an early supper; and you must sleep with one eye open, and be up before the day. I decided on a sleeping-sack; and after repeated visits to Le Puy, and a deal of high living for myself and my advisers, a sleeping-sack was designed, constructed, and triumphantly brought home.
The Road Less Traveled, a collection of eight short stories by Rochelle Hamel, focuses on a core of familiar themes as it explores the importance of community, the value of romantic love, the significance of family relationships, and the hardship of loss.
The story "The House by the Road" features Jessie, a runaway teen who strikes up an unlikely relationship with a feisty elderly woman. In "Call Me Ali," a pampered wife is the only survivor of a plane crash, and in the wilds of Canada she discovers her inner strength and grit. "Mackenzie Lewis" tells the story of a widow who faces the difficult to decision to save a family heritage in a modern-day business world. In "Winter of Content," Claire, a Manhattan lawyer, experiences the blizzards in the mountains of Montana.
The collection follows the emotional journeys of women of different ages who discover an inner strength as they face an unknown future. All have chosen the road less traveled-a decision that changes their lives forever.
