Legends don't come close to capturing the incredible story of the coyote In the face of centuries of campaigns of annihilation employing gases, helicopters, and engineered epidemics, coyotes didn't just survive, they thrived, expanding across the continent from Alaska to New York. In the war between humans and coyotes, coyotes have won, hands-down. Coyote America is the illuminating five-million-year biography of this extraordinary animal, from its origins to its apotheosis. It is one of the great epics of our time.

Great read!! Historically accurate. Many fascinating details of wolf and coyote taxonomy. wonderful reintroduction to the legend of the coyote - a persecuted and misunderstood vital predator native to North America.

I enjoyed this book : well written, informative and challenging. It was interesting to compare it with Farley Mowatt's `environmental' writings about wolves in the 1960s/1970s, not much changes in terms of how we persecute certain groups of animals.
