Heartwarming illustrations of a young boy journeying through a yellow wood accompany the original text of the poem. When a fork in the road arises for the boy, so too does the first of life's many choices. And as the poem progresses, so does the boy's life: college, career, marriage, family, loss, and, by journey's end, the sweet satisfaction of a life fully lived.

About the Author

Robert Frost is one of America’s most beloved poets. Born in 1874 in San Francisco, California, he spent most of his life in rural New England. His poems frequently drew on his rural surroundings to teach deeper principles on life. Some of his most famous poems include “Mending Wall,” “Birches,” “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” and “The Road Not Taken” featured in this book. By his passing in 1963, Frost had been awarded four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry, received the Congressional Gold Medal, and been nominated thirty-one times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
