Об авторе (2003)

After earning an engineering degree at the University of Massachusetts, Tod Benoit spent ten years incarcerated in Corporate America, profoundly disturbed that his biography might someday mirror that of Ivan Ilych's, as told by Leo Tolstoy. In 1997, he redirected his efforts and has since spent his days on assorted far-flung adventures, from mountainbiking the Continental Divide to hitchhiking the wilds of South America.Tod Benoit is an entrepreneur who has logged more than 10,000 miles driving around the country in search of notable graves.
