This moving account of writer/photographer Stockton's first year with her pet coyote, Charlie, expands on her popular blog, the Daily Coyote, but newcomers and the authors many fans will find that this memoir offers a complete—if not yet completed—story about love and life in a small Wyoming town. On a cross-country move from San Francisco to New York City in 2005, Stockton fell in love with the beauty of Wyomings Bighorn Mountains and decided to settle there. She found new roots and a new boyfriend, a government trapper whose job was to protect livestock by killing coyotes. When he finds an orphaned coyote pup, barely 10 days old, he gives it to Stockton, beginning an adventure that moves human and animal from a blissful open affection (the authors photos of baby Charlie are as adorable as they are beautifully composed) through a period of reconsideration after Charlie bites her to a breakthrough realization that Charlie needed a much more structured alpha attitude from his owner. Stockton's journey of sharing her life with a wild animal and providing training while respecting Charlies unique nature makes for a fascinating and rewarding read. (Dec.)

"Much more than an explanation of canine training methods, Stockton's unique book gives a glimpse of rugged life in the West and its harsh and beautiful landscape." ---Library JournalSee all Editorial Reviews
An interesting story, but it lacks a dramatic focus. I liked it mainly because I like stories about animals. I've given it away, as I wouldn't read it twice.Published 3 months ago by Penina
I think the author tried her best with this coyote. I was however, disappointed she chose Cesar Milan's harsh and incorrect methods when Charlie got aggressive. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Gladgracy
