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. To date she
has twenty-three books to her credit, all of which are
illustrated with her own photography.
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.
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
New York Times
“As either natural history or personal adventure, this is a
superb book.” -Publishers
