Coyote is three years old when she leaves her family in Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario and embarks on a 500-mile odyssey eastward in search of a territory of her own and a mate to share it with.

Journeying by night through the dead of winter, she endures extreme cold, hunger, and a harrowing crossing of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal before her cries of loneliness are finally answered in the wilds of Maine. The mate she finds must gnaw off a paw to escape a trap.  The first coyotes in the northern U.S., they raise pups (losing several), experience summer plenty, winter hardship, playfulness, and unmistakable love and grief.  Blending science and imagination with magical results, this story tells how coyotes may have populated a land desperately in need of a keystone predator, and no one who reads it will doubt the value of their ecological role.

  • Told through the eyes of a coyote, this is a riveting story with mythic dimensions.
  • A work of creative nonfiction that adheres to the highest standards of wildlife biology.
  • With deep insights into wild canine behavior, penetrates the veil of “otherness” that separates us from the animals with whom we share the planet.
  • An appendix explores the history and current status of coyotes in North America. Native Americans considered them tricksters, messengers, and companions. Given the disappearance of wolves, they are even more critical to ecosystem health today. The author explains how, without coyotes, prey species are weakened by disease and parasites.
  • Geri Vistein speaks extensively about coyote-human interactions to a variety of audiences. She is a nationally recognized expert on the topic and maintains the website CoyoteLivesInMaine.com.
  • A QR code in the book takes readers to a hauntingly beautiful recording of coyote song.

I AM COYOTE: Readings for the Wild is an anthology of the great wilderness writings. The collection contains works written by mountaineers, paddlers, and backcountry travelers; poets, novelists, and environmental advocates. In these writings, we see nature's admirers thirsting for adventure and truth on land, river, sea, and ice. I AM COYOTE includes writings from Muir, Kerouac, Emerson, Roosevelt, Whitman, Twain, Shackleton, Berry and many more. A portion of the proceeds go towards the scholarship fund for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS)

"In pulling together writings from Muir, Roosevelt, Thoreau, London, and just about every other outdoor heavyweight you can think of, I AM COYOTE makes a strong bid to be the ultimate campfire anthology." --Backpacker Magazine

"Put this book in your rucksack and head for the mountains. Read it tired at the end of a long day, by the light of a campfire. Forget what our culture insists: feeling small is actually feeling good." --Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

"I AM COYOTE is a reader replete with revelations that arise when human beings encounter what human thought cannot create: wilderness. It is only when we get away from the human-made world that we discover what it truly means to have become a human being." --Paul Hawken, author of Natural Capitalism
