Overview

“There must be an easier way,” I told myself. After over thirty years of climbing high snowy mountains and traipsing across sparse frozen plains in search of one species after another, the need for another option began to noticeably manifest itself. The mountains became higher, the distances grew farther, and the air turned thinner. The idea came to me like a thunderbolt. All I had to do was climb up in a tall tree with a good view and hang out. Little did I realize the totally unanticipated consequences of swaying in a forest breeze untold hours alone with nothing to do but wait. My musings ranged from jotting down snatches of captivating verse to laughing at the antics of friends and fellow sportsmen, from sorting out and mulling over everyday events to solving world problems and from inventing games to combat the pain of freezing to death to remembering and laughing at the borderline XXX hijinks of Wild Bill and Master Hardwick. Every pre-dawn morning, a new bone chilling adventure and a joyous heartwarming cerebral journey awaited me as I climbed high into the forest canopy for another thrilling outdoor session. Come along with me now. Let’s sway in the tall pines, drink in the forest aroma, feel the tranquility of nature, contemplate the world around us, and chuckle together about the fun times.

Following his love of the outdoors after high school in West Virginia led Mike Cyrus to the University of Montana, where he worked his way through school parachuting out of airplanes, and leading ground crews to combat wildfires throughout the US. In all that time, Mike never missed hunting seasons and practicing his religion of floating and fly fishing Montana's great Blue Ribbon trout streams. After 17 years of fighting wildfires, and owning several businesses, he took up cattle ranching. Now retired from ranch life, he lives mostly in a remote internet challenged village in Panama with his wife, Rosa, and their two children, Dixie and Dusty, where he actively fishes, snorkels, and scuba dives the blue Caribbean waters beside his home. Mike lost his first son, Chad Hunter Cyrus, when his Super Cub plummeted to the ground after encountering a microburst near Miles City, Montana, August 18, 2011. A self described Hemingway-ish adventurer who made his own way, Mike takes pride in his independence, rugged individualism, and 50 years of bigger than life experiences from the wilds of Northern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. He says that he has finally slowed down a little and spends full time with his family and wholeheartedly enjoys preparing his children for a joyful, untroubled, meritorious life, while beginning to fulfill his lifelong dream of writing novels. The Kingdom Come is the first of three, which will be interspersed with a series of short stories already written ‘along the trail.’ Look for ‘Tall Tree Chronicles, Rip-Roaring Outdoor Escapades,’ Parts 1 & 2, coming soon.
