The Daily Coyote
A Story of Love, Survival, and Trust in the Wilds of WyomingBook - 2008
When photographer-writer Shreve Stockton decided to move back to New York from San Francisco, she decided to make the trip on her Vespa. When she reached Wyoming, captivated by the Bighorn Mountains and the wide-open spaces, she found herself a log cabin in Ten Sleep--population 300. Shreve took to the rules of the land, where time is of a different essence, nature is both livelihood and enemy, deer and coyote mark the dawn and dusk. After she met a local cowboy, first a friendship and then a romance blossomed. When Shreve was presented with a ten-day-old coyote pup whose parents had been shot, she decided to raise the pup she came to call Charlie. In prose and breathtaking photography, this is Shreve's exploration of Charlie's first year, a meditation on the nature of wildness versus domestication, of nature versus nurture, and of forgiveness, loyalty, and love in all its forms.--From publisher description.
