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.

I got this book out after it was mentioned on The title of the book makes more sense if you know that it’s a blog-turned-book.

Neither remarkable nor un-, it is a sweet little story about the author’s first year spent with a wild coyote pup turned pet. The main drawback is that the story is much better than the writing; it feels like Stockton is telling her story as a one-sided conversation with the reader, including the parts where you realize you’ve forgotten something your listener will need to know to understand the next bit, so you hurriedly go off on a tangential explanation and return several minutes later with “So anyway, where was I? Oh yes …” However, the thousands of words all the photographs in this book are worth make up for it.
