Coyotes

by Jennifer Zeiger Illustrated by Steve Gray

Photos, maps, and informative text offer a clear view of the coyotes' role in nature. Whether they are stalking through the fallen leaves on a forest floor or sneaking into backyards, coyotes often appear mysterious and sneaky. Readers will discover how these intelligent animals hunt for food, why they are so often found living near humans, and how they are related to the dogs many people keep as pets. They will also find out what coyotes eat and how they care for their young.
