Lastly the author provides an up-to-date account of the poet's relation to multiculturalism in terms of ethnic issues. As the title is meant to convey, the book concerns not a journey assumed merely by a Frost devotee, but Robert Frost's own road being taken, namely that originally traversed by the poet himself and now transformed into essay format.
