About the Author:

Alexandra R.Haslam received her BA from San Francisco State University. Where Coyotes Howl and Wind Blows Free is the first book-length collaboration with her father, Gerald W. Haslam. Gerald W. Haslam, the author of Straight White Male and other award-winning titles, is professor emeritus of English at Sonoma State University. He lives in Northern California.

From Booklist:

Gr. 9^-12. The unifying theme for these 35 selections is that all the authors grew up in the American West and are writing to relate some aspect of that experience. Although generally of high quality, some of the works are better than others, and each will appeal to a different audience. The real impact of the collection, however, is found in the wide variety of ethnic groups represented; many voices from our country, each with different experiences and culturally varied responses to the remarkably similar emotional process of growing up. The editors chose well, providing for variety of style as well as diversity of viewpoint. This would be a wonderful tool for any unit with a multicultural bent, as well as a source for coming-of-age tales for those youths looking for something that addresses their culture in this country. Jeanne Triner
