  Author-naturalist Hope Ryden has spent years in the field, studying and photographing North American wildlife.  Her  behavioral  findings  have  been published  in  National  Geographic, Smithsonian, and Audubon magazines, and her books have been translated into  German,  Swedish,  Finnish, Norwegian, Dutch, Spanish,  Italian and Russian.

  For  two  uncomfortable  years  the author  camped  in  remote  areas  of Wyoming and Montana, observing and photographing  the elusive coyote  in an effort to discover  the truth behind the ignorance and misinformation  that has plagued  this much-maligned animal for over two hundred years. This book, considered the classic treatise on the subject,  is  the  end  result  of  that research.  It  has  prompted comparisons to Jane Goodall’s work  in Africa.

REVIEWS of GOD’S DOG:
“With this attractive animal under pressure  from  people  who  are biologically  illiterate, we need definite information as  to the way of  life of  this mammal. Ms. Ryden has added much insight  to  our understanding  of  the coyote.” -Roger Tory Peterson

“As  the wilderness shrinks, man’s moral responsibilities increase. Hope Ryden’s book is as full of charm and tenacious  inquisitiveness  as  the appealing animal  she pleads  to  see allowed to live.” -The Washington Post

“In God’s Dog, as in earlier books, Hope Ryden mixes  love and reason in her own special blender and comes out with very good natural history data, a clear picture of what the problem is and a  faultless and reasoned attitude.”
-The New York Times

“As either natural history or personal adventure, this is a superb book.” -Publishers Weekly
