Overview


Coyote is separated from her mate by a rockfall and searches the park to find him. Sometimes silent, occasionally observed, always watchful, Coyote makes her way from one memorable site to another, singing a lonely song of yips and yowls. Gorgeous watercolor paintings of Yosemite illuminate this ultimately satisfying story, while the text closely observes one of the park's most familiar kind of wild resident. Young readers will discover much about coyotes, and will also delight in spotting the places they too have visited—Half Dome, Sentinel Bridge, Stoneman Meadow, the Ahwahnee, and more.

Read an Excerpt


That night, Coyote follows the Merced River
to Sentinel Bridge.
On the east side of the stone bridge,
visitors gaze at Half Dome
and at the moon rising beyond the magnificent
monolith.
Some click cameras.
Others hold hands.
On the west side, Coyote raises her muzzle high
and howls at the star-filled sky.
At last, a familiar yip returns her song!
