Read this epic and you will not only discover more about coyotes, but also how human nature and politics have shaped this country, the land it was built upon, and the creatures it was built around -- and how they in turn have shaped us. - Olivia, Book Culture Selects letter, New Non-Fiction paperback, December 2017

"A masterly synthesis of scientific research and personal observation." --Wall Street Journal
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.
