I did review this book, darn it! Once again, Library Thing sends a missile of destruction my way. I know it's free and beggars can't be choosers but, dang! is it time to move to that other Library website... dare I say... G-R?

Anyway, an OK book made better by good narration but, even though I loved hearing about this little coyote's upbringing, at the same time my stomach lurched every time she left Charlie tied to a tree out in a ravine or some other place for hours and hours. DO NOT do this at home or in the wild with your dog, please!!!

The other really really annoying feature of the book was how this woman actually believed that she was so darn poor and had to struggle... "survival" she writes... :) ... while getting help from her boyfriend at a drop of a hat. Oh how hard she had it! White, beautiful woman privilege in action, with total non-recognition to boot. Oh well, we all have to try to get better at that.

For a truly beautiful story of the Wyoming wilds try "Letters from a Homesteading Woman" (something like that, you can find it I'm sure). For a so-so, cringe inducing but cute story of raising a coyote this is a good book to read.

For a real treat check out her website - she has some stunning photos and is a really good photographer ( )

A thought-provoking glimpse of the author's year raising a coyote pup, with gorgeous photos throughout. ( )

Shreve Stockton, writer-photographer, left SanFrancisco and by Vespar was journeying to her "beloved"New York.

She was entranced by Bighorn Mountain, red dirt and wide open spaces.
After a brief time in New York, she was drawn back to Wyoming, set aside urban living and took a house in Ten Sleep, Wyoming -- population 300.

As our story unfolds, Shreve has accepted a 10 day old coyote pup. (soon to be called Charlie)

The Daily Coyote is born as Shreve shares online, on a daily basis, life reflections and photography of Charlie's first year.

A fantastic book by a wonderful writer about her move to Wyoming, her adoption of a coyote pup, and her success at letting go of the need for control over nature and other people. I loved it. ( )

Good account of a woman who takes in a baby coyote and in helping it to adulthood, helps herself, too. ( )

Book description
When photographer and writer Shreve Stockton decided to move back to her beloved New York from San Francisco, she decided to take her time and make the trip on her Vespa.  When she reached Wyoming, Shreve was captivated by the red dirt, the Bighorn Mountains, and the wide0=-open spaces.  Unable to shake the spell of the "cowboy state," she soon found herself trading her New York City apartment for a house in Ten SLeep, Wyoming--population 300.

Shreve threw away her cell phone and took to the rules of the land, adjusting to a lifestyle that was a near antithesis of that of the urban jungle.   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 by chance on the side of the road, first a friendship and then a romance blossomed between them.

When Shreve was unexpectedly presented with a ten-day-old coyote pup whose parents had been shot for killing sheep, she had a choice to ake. Despite her reservations and the terror of her tomcat Eli, Shreve decided to do the unthinkable--to raise the coyote pup she came to call Charlie in her 12X12-foot log cabin.

In arresting prose and illuminated with Shreve's breathtaking photography, The Daily Coyote is at once Shreve's month-by-month exploration of Charlie's first year and a meditation on the nature of wildness versus domestication, of nature versus nurture, and of forgiveness, loyalty, and love in all its forms.
