Scott/The Songs From Long Road
And editor once asked me about the title of this book. “The Songs part is self evident,”
she said, “but what exactly is meant by ‘Long Road?’”
The American Indians had a term for this existence of ours. They called it the Road of
Life. I find it to be an apt analogy, for along that road we find unimpeded straight-aways,
twists and turns, bumps, detours, and dead-ends. The term applies not only to the life of
the individual, but to generation after generation. From the dawn of human history, it has
indeed been a Long Road.
