    Animal Lovers: Do not be fooled!

    This is truly the worst book I have read in years. I bought the book based on the premise and the engaging photos, which are very good, but that is really all the book has to offer. <BR/><BR/>The writing is shallow and self-indulgent. The author shares way too many details of her intimate relationship which sound more like romance novel drivel and seem grossly out of place here. Additionally, she appears to be devoid of any convictions of her own. She blows into Wyoming, falls in love with a hunky but sullen and sulky cowboy who slaughters coyotes for a living, and adopts his values regarding the justification for this "work". If she had happened to find a gorgeous environmental activist we would be reading that book instead. The only reason she has the coyote in the first place is because he snuffed out the pup's entire family and, on an unexplained impulse, grabs this pup out of the den, taking it to be raised in an unnatural manner. The book gives the feeling of being written out of some compelling need to convince the rest of us that this sort of systematic extermination is really OK. Reading the lame justifications given for the daily slaughter of wild animals will be hard for anyone who truly loves animals.
