About this book

In The Voice of the Coyote, J. Frank Dobie melds natural history with tales and lore in articulating the complex and often contentious relationship between coyotes and humans. Based on his own life experiences in Texas and twenty-five years of research, Dobie forges a sympathetic and nuanced picture of the coyote prefiguring later environmental and conservation movements. He recognizes the impact of human action on the coyote while also examining the prominent role of the coyote in the myths and legends of the West.

"Deftly blends the natural history of the coyote with the anecdote, tall tales, and legend gathered from the author's wide reading and personal experience in his native region."-New York Times Book Review

A personal, intimately written, and enormously fascinating volume.--Joseph Henry Jackson, San Francisco Chronicle "These firsthand accounts, together with the author's own memories, give the book a freshness that is one of its charms."--E. W. Teale, New York Herald Tribune "Deftly blends the natural history of the coyote with the anecdote, tall tales, and legend gathered from the author's wide reading and personal experience in his native region."--New York Times Book Review
