Join SYRCL and historian and author Dan Flores on November 14 as he presents from his new book in the works, Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History.
The coyote’s stunning ability to live alone or in groups, its spread from the Great Plains across the continent, and its success in a land where rampant environmental change and spreading cities have so altered the landscape renders it remarkably similar to another successful species: humans. From the coyote, we can learn a great deal about ourselves.
Dan Flores has held the A. B. Hammond Chair in Western History at the University of Montana since 1992. His specialty is the environmental and cultural history of the American West. He is the author of eight books, most recently Visions of the Big Sky (2010), Caprock Canyonlands (a 20th anniversary edition, 2010), and The Natural West (2002). His essays on the environment, art, and culture of the West also appear in magazines such as Texas Monthly, Orion, Southwest Art, The Big Sky Journal, and High Country News. His work has been honored by the Western History Association, the Western Writers of America, the Denver Public Library, the National Cowboy Museum, the Oklahoma Book Awards, the University of Oklahoma Press, the Montana Historical Society, the Texas State Historical Association, the High Plains Book Awards, and the Montana Book Awards. His next book is Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural Histoy.
