Summary

When city girl Shreve Stockton set out to ride her Vespa from San Francisco to New York, she never imagined she would end up making a log cabin in Wyoming her home, falling in love with a trapper, and working as a ranch hand. She also could not have predicted adopting Charlie, an orphaned coyote pup. In a world where coyotes are hunted as killers, Stockton and Charlie have faced challenges---as well as joys---throughout their first year. Operating Instructions meets Marley and Me in this charming life-lesson book about life, love, and the bond between humans and nature.

The Daily Coyote was inspired by Stockton's blog of the same name. Wildly popular and praised by Rosie O'Donnell, James Wolcott of Vanity Fair, and the Los Angeles Times, the site receives over a million hits per month and was nominated for a 2007 Weblog of the Year Award only a month after its inception. Numerous media outlets, from People to NPR, can't wait to feature Stockton and Charlie.

lessons from the wild

lovely book of interspecies vulnerability, wildness, and trust. to completely immerse into relationship with another, these qualities are essential. Shreve wove a story of these forces into a loosley woven braid .
like every braid, it must be unraveled and comed out once in awhile. this book was recommended to me years ago. glad it rose to the top to be experienced and enjoyed.

She says it all!

Shreve has put into words a visual,mental,and audio discription of real Wyoming. Has captured the intuitive language,or lack of it, used as well as the mind set of the place.How it is, is how it was. A++

Starts out with a band

but has periods or repeating and slowing of the story. I wish the ending was a little more conclusive.
