Coyote America: The coyote's stunning ability to live alone or in groups, its spread from the Great Plains and western deserts across the continent, and its success in a land where rampant  environmental change and spreading cities have  so altered the landscape, renders it remarkably similar to another successful species, for whom it has long served as an avatar: human beings. Dan Flores New York Times Bestseller, Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History, which won the 2017 Sigurd Olson Prize in Nature Writing and was a Finalist for PEN America's 2017 E. O. Wilson Prize in Literary Science Writing, tells the coyote's remarkable, even epic story. It is a wildlife biography from which we can learn a great deal about ourselves.
