About this book

Alerts us to the extraordinary story of evolution in action unfolding under our very noses, the story of an animal that is a 'mix of wolf and coyote, old and new, necessary and fierce and wily.'As Reid shows, the eastern coyote in its hundred-year migration from the western plains to New England has picked up wolf DNA and a little-understood combination of coyote and wolf behaviors. The eastern coyote typically weighs considerably more than its western cousin, many well over fifty pounds. The size of the eastern coyote and its ability to take such prey as deer, as well as domestic dogs and cats, have left some ecologists to wonder whether we'll call this animal living among us 'coyote' or 'wolf' in another twenty years. Coyote rekindles our age-old fascination with coyote as trickster, coyote (as Mark Twain put it) as 'living, breathing allegory of Want.' And it suggests, through a wealth of astonishing evidence, that we will all need to forge a brand-new relationship to this large, until recently unknown, and uncannily intelligent hunter in our midst.
