About the author
Bob Tuff, aka Roadrunner, was born on a little farm outside Cody, Wyoming in 1949. He was educated at boarding school in Australia while his parents were serving as Lutheran missionaries in Papua New Guinea during the 1960's. He served with the U.S. Army, Vietnam in 1969 and, after being discharged, worked as a furniture craftsman until his retirement in 2012. He lived a life of adventure and misadventure along the way and having remembereed many of the details, decided it was a life that deserved a chronicle of some variety. After landing in a quiet place during the year 2010, he sat down and wrote a long memoir in ten months.
