Hungry Coyote addresses the trend of coyotes living in or near urban areas.
On its cover, a coyote stares you in the face, and you want to open the book to see what is inside. Written in a rich, poetic voice that speaks of survival and illustrated with winter’s freezing details, you enter a winter land and sense the tough times wildlife has, in particular, the coyote. But the coyote is smart and a survivor and uses its ability to adapt to its environment. They’ve learned to live invisibly alongside human dwellers in urban areas. The author includes information about City Coyotes and what to do if you encounter one. Highly recommended book.
