The product of over thirty years of research, this book will make you view the coyote on an entirely different plane. Dobie pens what he calls a "biography" of the coyote by tracing this mysterious and exciting animal throughout history and weaving together entertaining stories of fact, fiction, science and imagination. This collection of stories will not only make you laugh, but will introduce you to a fascinating but long-misunderstood animal. Cloth edition with color-foil stamping.
