Michael was born in Denver and spent most of his childhood there. When he was eleven, his parents divorced, Dad and him moved to Whitefish. Dad was a truck driver and felt that Whitefish was a better place for Michael to be, because Dad was often on the road.
Michael never was overly active in school. Instead, Joe and him preferred to spend their afternoons learning to play guitar. For his fourteenth birthday, Dad gave him a Fender Strat. Joe and him started their first band the next day. They called themselves Muck and they were terrible. Both of them grew their hair out really long and carried their guitars everywhere.
Once at a party, Michael fell asleep on the couch. Dad was en route to Idaho, so he didn't have to worry about being home. There were a few others sleeping there too, including Joe and a some other guys. The next morning, Michael woke up to something licking his face. Thinking it was the host's dog, he shoved it away with his hand and rolled over.
Then he heard the scream.
Michael turned around and came face to face with a brown bear. Someone had left the patio doors open during the night. Smelling the potato chips and half empty beer bottles, the animal came in for a visit.
Luckily for Michael, the bear wasn't interested in sampling human. It grabbed a full bag of Doritos's Cool Ranch chips and headed back out into the wilderness. For the next several months, Michael earned the nickname "Bear Slapper."
I’d like to thank Macmillan for sending me a copy of Rage Within to review and for organizing my stop on the tour.
