Schools of all sorts, colleges and universities have been aware for some time that books are rather helpful in the teaching and learning process. Hope Ryden said in her wonderful book "God's Dog" that "Coyote lore abounds, but I found hard facts difficult to come by". That's no longer true. I have a pretty good sized library of books and studies, some excellent, some not. A lot of information about coyote ecology and behavior can be utilized in the field by callers and some of that which can't be used is still helpful in understanding the nature and history of this little guy. The significance of Rich Cronk's home town of Council Bluffs, Ia in the history of the coyote is available through "book learning". Some of my favorites are "God's Dog", "Seasons of the Coyote" Harrison, "Coyote: Predator and Survivor" Cadieux, "Coyote" Meinzer, "Track of the Coyote" Wilkinson, and "Predator Caller's Companion" Blair. Do any of you have any favorites?
