About this title


This is the tale of a wily coyote that was widely pursued by trappers in the sheep country of northeastern Utah in the early 1940s. The story is actually a fictionalized account of real events in which the author, Preston Q. Hale, played a key role. It vividly depicts life in the late 1930s in northeastern Utahs sheep countrythe ridges and benches of the Uintah Basin through which flows the Green River. The book explores the mystique of the often maligned coyote, making no hero of it, but also showing it to be an animal of great intelligence, a stealthy hunter, dedicated to its mate and pups. This is a story that will appeal to readers of all ages.

The coyote is thoroughly entwined in the history and lore of American West. Today, writes the author, Farmers, ranchersanyone whos worked or slept outdoors outside the cities and towns of the Westhas likely heard the coyotes howl at night. It stirs the imaginationwhich can run wild.

The book features illustrations and a color cover by Truckee, California artist Pam McAdoo. She worked closely with the author to produce exquisite pencil illustrations which complement the text. Her watercolor rendering of the coyote, Two Toes, is featured on the books dust jacket.

About the Author:

Preston Q. Hale, a Boise, Idaho native, has lived in Reno for more than fifty years and is one of Nevadas most successful and prominent citizens. He arrived in the Truckee Meadows in 1948 as assistant supervisor of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for this region. A stubborn westerner, he resigned when asked to transfer to the east and started a new career in commercial real estate. He began Two Toes when friends and colleagues urged him to write about his experiences with this wily coyote.
