In the late 1990s, Mike and his wife, Jan, moved to Mitchell, South Dakota to watch their grandchildren grow up.

READERS' COMMENTS ON BECOMING HUMAN:

The author, a keen observer, appears to have lived an eventful life, full of travel and omnivorous reading. From the experiences of his military service, his work as a cop on the beat, the death of his brother and the stories of numerous people he met along the way, he draws thoughtful conclusions about the human condition. A polished wordsmith, he makes these tales come alive with importance for us even when most of the characters are ordinary people coping with daily living. A gifted story teller.                                                                -Lavon C. Hall

 

I received your book just the other day. What a treat! I must say that your writing screams of heart and soul, and your treatment of history and humanity rules. Well done. You have a real gift and Becoming Human is a lovely piece work. Thank you.

A KEY ENDORSEMENT OF BECOMING HUMAN:

Mike Randall writes of many people, places and events, including mammoth hunters on the James River lowland. That northern plains river meanders over 700 miles, making the most of its time…as does Mike. A transplant from Seattle, he meanders South Dakota and many other climes, expressing fresh thoughts on a variety of regional and universal topics. Mike offers gentle, mental refreshment in Becoming Human.
