About the Author
Mike's maternal grandfather was a true renaissance man with an extensive and varied library of books. As soon as he could read, Mike began reading outside of school assignments, the translated Egyptian Books of the Dead, and the theories of Colonel Churchward on the lost continent of Mu, to name just a few. An interest in history did not put food on the table, so Mike did not return to college after two years of pre-forestry, his second interest. After Army basic training, Mike was retained to teach field wire techniques at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri until he returned to his National Guard Unit in Sheridan Wyoming. Mike worked as a construction lineman, a cowboy, an outfitter, a logger, a truck driver and finally settled into a real job with a rural telephone cooperative. His service area encompassed 3,500 square miles of northeastern Wyoming and southeastern Montana, and he devoted 31 years to "his people" as he liked to call the subscribers to the co-op. After retirement in 2000, Mike divided his time between several service organizations and clubs, plus lending a helping hand on his in-laws ranch where he lives with his wife Mary. Mike is a Smithsonian contributing member and also to the Gatchell Museum in Buffalo Wyoming. He is the president of the Big Horn City Historical Society, Pistol Section director of the Sheridan County Sportsman's Association, Elks, Eagles, and American Legion member. After sharpening his pen writing 580 humor columns for the Sheridan Press, Mike decided to create a tale with a great deal of popular and local appeal, and thus, Black Eagle Down was born. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

However, the story jumps around too much without clear transitions (perhaps the fault of the Kindle format). The writing was OK but not great and the political correctness was too obvious and forced.
I barely finished reading it.
