• A fascinating true tale: When city girl Shreve Stockton set out to ride her Vespa from San Francisco to New York, she never imagined she’d end up staying in Wyoming, falling in love with a trapper, and working as a ranch hand. Nor could she have forseen meeting Charlie, the orphaned coyote pup who made Stockton’s log cabin his home. In a world where coyotes are hunted as killers, Stockton and Charlie faced challenges—as well as joys—throughout their first year, each of which came with revelations about life, love, and the bond between humans and nature. . • Based on an award-winning blog: The Daily Coyote was inspired by Stockton’s blog of the same name. Wildly popular and hailed by Rosie O’Donnell, Vanity Fair , and the L.A. Times , the site receives over a million hits per month and was the winner of the 2007 Weblog of the Year Award only a month after its inception. . • A moving visual memoir: Stockton documents Charlie’s first year in stunning full-color photography. Each month’s entry is accompanied by rich images of Charlie as he grows from adorable pup to wily adult, alongside Stockton’s tomcat, Eli, and set against the wide-open landscapes of Wyoming. .

Coyote is three years old when she leaves her family in Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario and embarks on a 500-mile odyssey eastward in search of a territory of her own and a mate to share it with. Journeying by night through the dead of winter, she endures extreme cold, hunger, and a harrowing crossing of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal before her cries of loneliness are finally answered in the wilds of Maine. The mate she finds must gnaw off a paw to escape a trap. The first coyotes in the northern U.S., they raise pups (losing several), experience summer plenty, winter hardship, playfulness, and unmistakable love and grief. Blending science and imagination with magical results, this story tells how coyotes may have populated a land desperately in need of a keystone predator, and no one who reads it will doubt the value of their ecological role. Told through the eyes of a coyote, this is a riveting story with mythic dimensions. A work of creative nonfiction that adheres to the highest standards of wildlife biology. With deep insights into wild canine behavior, penetrates the veil of “otherness” that separates us from the animals with whom we share the planet. An appendix explores the history and current status of coyotes in North America. Native Americans considered them tricksters, messengers, and companions. Given the disappearance of wolves, they are even more critical to ecosystem health today. The author explains how, without coyotes, prey species are weakened by disease and parasites. Geri Vistein speaks extensively about coyote-human interactions to a variety of audiences. She is a nationally recognized expert on the topic and maintains the website A QR code in the book takes readers to a hauntingly beautiful recording of coyote song.

As in any area where little is known and much feared or suspected, bring up the subject of coyotes, and myths and half-truths fly. This book will deflate the myths and illuminate and share the truths. Once just a colorful supporting character of the Old West or childrens cartoons, coyotes are now real-life neighbors to just about every one of us. Every state in the US except Hawaii has them, and they slink around suburbs and cities as well as the countryside. Coyotes are too big to be cute and cuddly, and they remind us of the wolves we humans went to such trouble to exterminate or remove from our surroundings. Most of us have heard or read stories, or watched TV accounts, of coyote problems across the country, and many of us have listened to the chilling yips and howls of a coyote pack somewhere right beyond our sight. The spread of the intelligent, adaptable, and opportunistic coyote across America is perhaps the biggest wildlife success story of recent years-but not everyone is happy about it. Parents worry that their children may be attacked by a coyote in the backyard or nearby field. Pet owners know that their cats and dogs are likely to be. Hikers and other outdoors enthusiasts who encounter coyotes in the wilds wonder if they are at risk. Sheep and cattle farmers, and even fruit growers, are up in arms about losses to coyotes. Deer hunters fear that the rise of coyotes has meant a reduction in deer in many places. Wildlife experts have noted that where coyotes proliferate, the graceful and beautiful red and grey fox and other animals may be reduced or disappear. This book covers all the information you need to be in the know about our rather furry neighbors.

Rich in both natural beauty and natural resources, Wyoming is home to such marvels as the Teton, Big Horn, and Sierra Madre Mountains, The Powder and Bighorn Rivers, And The Yellowstone, Devil's Tower, Grand Teton, and Bridger-Teton National Parks. In between the majestic mountains and rushing rivers lies some of the nation's best grazing land, making the state a haven for cattle ranchers. Wyoming is so varied that it also contains prairies, sagebrush steppes, desert scrubland, coniferous and deciduous forests, and even alpine tundra. First explored by fur trappers, who soon yielded to gold rushers, ranchers, and cowboys, Wyoming has long preserved its rugged individualistic streak, fostering the independent-minded who sought only to make a living without being bothered or confined by anyone or anything. That spirit still flourishes today, making Wyoming one of the most fascinating states in the Union, one that is still very much on the frontier of still-Wild West. This book brings the state to vivid life, In all its unique detail and rugged spirit.
