Editorial Reviews

Review

"A complex story of our time and region told with disarming simplicity."

"A wonderful book that everyone should read."

." . . an enjoyable and thought-provoking novel."

"Ý"Coyote Morning"¨ is written with a light yet sensitive touch. A thoroughly pleasant read."

." . an engrossing, thought-provoking novel centered on characters on both sides of an animal control conflict."

""Coyote Morning" is a thoughtful, timely portrayal of people grappling with change--in themselves, how they see each other, and where they've chosen to call home."

"Lisa Lenard-Cook reminds us of our constant connection to wild life here--our encroachment on it, our cohabitation with it, our ultimate mutual dependency to survive--in her novel "Coyote Morning." . . This is an important book from an award-winning New Mexican writer who writes with a sharp eye and a compassionate heart."

From the Inside Flap

This story of the conflicts between humans and coyotes reminds us to reflect on our relationship with the natural world.

Format: Paperback
Elegant novel using the coyote--a flashpoint wild animal that stirs more emotion than any other except perhaps the wolf, but is certainly more ubiquitous--to explore our ambivalence about living in nature and toward wildlife in general. The New Mexican village of Valle Bosque, just outside of Albuquerque (I think... maybe Santa Fe) is populated by hippies, artists, long-time locals (including some rednecks), Native American wannabes and other new-agers, chicken-raisers, newcomers attracted by the environment and its beauty--that is to say those who romanticize the coyote, those who respect it, those who fear it, and those who hate it. Everyone's views are perhaps a bit simple--even, it seems to me, those of the Native American tribal leader who writes into the local paper (many local views are epitomized in letters to the editor, some thoughtful, some furious, shared throughout the book)--and everyone has quite a lot to learn.

Format: Paperback
This compelling tale begins with a chance meeting, witnessed by a horrified mother, between her seven year old daughter and a coyote. Set in Valle Bosque, a fictional suburb of Albuquerque, this tale will resonate with anyone who has followed the environmental tug of war between developers, would be suburbanites and environmentalists. Anyone who lives in the present day south west will recognize Lisa Lenard-Cook's timely snapshot of the uneasy meeting and mingling of wild lands and suburbs.

Lisa tackles the environmental issues that create enemies and alliances between coyote supporters and the coyote haters. On one hand Coyote Morning is an examination of the efforts individuals make to cope with modern life and the inevitable dangers that result from those efforts. On the other hand Lisa explores the relational dynamic that occurs when people live together in a mysterious and complex world.
