Wanda Carroll presents: The Road Less Gravelled

The Road Less Gravelled is a series of funny stories about growing up in a small, remote outport in Northern Newfoundland in the 1970s. The outports (fishing communities) are being modernized during this time. A new grovel road connects Conche to the outside world for the very first time and so the old ways are being left behind. "The Road" in many ways is a history of that time. The stories are woven together to chronicle the live of Wanda Carroll growing up in Conche; as one world is lost to her another is just beyond her reach. Wanda shares her excitement at seeing her bathroom in "The Bat'room Story," and her love for the CBC in "I loves the CBC," and her disappointment in her first encounter with exotic fruit in "The Protestant Pineapple."
