The Road Taken is the narrative of the dramatic life and shocking death of Lew Holle, a complex, fascinating, and ultimately tragic character. The book is based on his memoirs, which were bequeathed to the author Michael Foss, who adds his own recollections of this remarkable man.... Holle's life moves from his bleak rural American roots to the sun-baked terrain of southern Spain; he becomes embroiled in drug-trafficking in Morocco, and serves time in an Italian jail. Returning at the end of his life to his family's land in Canada, he chooses to take his own life rather than fall victim to disease. The Road Taken is an inspirational tale of unquenchable independence and self-sufficiency: the account of a man who, rather than settle for mediocrity, spent his days on the road, and in doing so touched the lives of many people. Holle found solace in words and stories throughout his life and, fittingly, his own story is beautifully told by an award-winning writer and close friend.
