Format: Paperback
This is an interesting, informative book about coyotes for anyone interested in the smartest, most adaptable of all the mammals. Whether you're a hunter or someone just interested in nature, this is a good place to begin to learn about the coyote.
The book suffers from somewhat amateurish illustrations, but is otherwise the most accurate book on coyotes I've found.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Michael H. Lewis on September 17, 2009
Format: Paperback
I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN ARIZONA, AND IN MY 60 YEARS I HAVE HAD A FEW SIGHTINGS OF THE COYOTE. EVEN IN ALL THOSE YEARS I STILL STOP AND WATCH THE COYOTE GO BY. I AM PART NATIVE AMERICAN AND I BELIEVE IN THE SPIRIT THE COYOTE POSSESSES. AS WITH SOME TRIBES HE IS EVIL AND WITH OTHERS HE IS NOT. ALL I KNOW IS WHEN I SEE A COYOTE TURN AROUND AND LOOK AT ME I DO NOT STAIR BACK.
AT MY FIRST HOUSE IN TUCSON THERE WAS A BIG WASH IN THE BACK. COYOTES WOULD TRAVEL THAT WASH ALL THE TIME, ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT IN THE SUMMER. THE COYOTES WOULD START TO SING IN THE WASH, AND AT TIMES IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL WE WOULD THINK IT WAS A TRIBE COME BACK FROM THE PAST TO FINISH A DANCE. I WAS ALWAYS ENTRANCED BY THE LOUD, MELODIC SONGS OF THE COYOTE. THERE WERE TIMES I THOUGHT IT WAS AN ANCIENT OPERA,TAKING ME UP AND DOWN WITH THE COYOTES MELODIES.
THE COYOTE IS WITH NO DOUBT THE SURVIVER OF THE DESERT, AND MAN CAN NEVER CHASE HIM AWAY. WHEN YOU HEAR THE SONGS OF THE COYOTE, REMEMBER THEY HAVE BEEN SINGING THOSE SONGS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, AND WILL ALWAYS DO SO. WHEN YOU HEAR THE COYOTE SING, IT IS HIS SKILL AS A SURVIVOR OVER MANS WILLINGNESS TO DESTROY HIM THAT MAKES ME SIT UP WITH RESPECT WHEN EVER I SEE HIM. ALWAYS GIVE HIM SPACE WHEN HE LOOKS AT YOU AND HE WILL DO THE SAME TO YOU. I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE COYOTE WAS THE SPIRIT OF A MAN returning,WHO KNOWS, THEY ARE TRULY MAGICAL.
