At the beginning of his book Bob LaPlante quotes Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.."As life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time, at peril of being judged not to have lived"...It was apparent after reading this book that Mr. LaPlante has truly taken advantage of his traveling opportunities and will be judged to have "lived life".
After reading the book we made arrangements to meet and interview this extraordinary man at his retirement home in Michigan's U.P. for our television series MICHIGAN MAGAZINE..and found the afternoon we spent with him truly overwhelming!
His reminiscence of those stories he features in this book was "spell binding" to say the least...Accented by a true humility for being given the chance to experience life's adventurous "twists and turns" through his 4 decades of service as a US Diplomatic Courier.
I believe any reader will find themselves lost within the pages of this short but exciting (175 pages)account of a man who truly is a TEN MILLION MILE MAN (10.8 Million to be more exact).
Thank you Mr. LaPlante for sharing your life with us!
