Publisher Comments:

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 wide-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 to 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 make. 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 12 12-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.

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

Synopsis:

• A fascinating true tale: When city girl Shreve Stockton set out to ride her Vespa from San Francisco to New York, she never imagined she’d end up staying in Wyoming, falling in love with a trapper, and working as a ranch hand. Nor could she have forseen meeting Charlie, the orphaned coyote pup who made Stockton’s log cabin his home. In a world where coyotes are hunted as killers, Stockton and Charlie faced challenges—as well as joys—throughout their first year, each of which came with revelations about life, love, and the bond between humans and nature. .

• Based on an award-winning blog: The Daily Coyote was inspired by Stockton’s blog of the same name. Wildly popular and hailed by Rosie O’Donnell, Vanity Fair , and the L.A. Times , the site receives over a million hits per month and was the winner of the 2007 Weblog of the Year Award only a month after its inception. .

• A moving visual memoir: Stockton documents Charlie’s first year in stunning full-color photography. Each month’s entry is accompanied by rich images of Charlie as he grows from adorable pup to wily adult, alongside Stockton’s tomcat, Eli, and set against the wide-open landscapes of Wyoming. .
