9780140050714: God's Dog: A Celebration of the North American Coyote

For two years naturalist/photographer Hope Ryden camped in remote areas of the West observing and photographing coyotes. With eloquence and clarity, she describes the private life of this much-maligned animal in a book that has been heralded as the classic treatise on the subject. While observing her controversial subjects, Hope endured hardships and peril, events she weaves into her beautiful story. "As full of charm and tenacious inquisitiveness as the appealing animal she pleads to see allowed to live."-The Washington Post"A faultless and reasoned attitude."-The New York Times

From the Back Cover:

To the desert Indians of the Southwest, he is "God's dog"; to generations of ranchers, a pest. But to Hope Ryden, the North American coyote is a fascinating, endearing, and maligned wild creature.God's Dog is the result of two years of field research on the coyote, replete with over 50 photographs of the animals whose wild spaces she shared. This is a spirited, informative account of a unique wild species. The final chapter, specially augmented for this edition, brings the story of the embattled coyote up to date. (6 X 9, 336 pages, b&w photos)
