About the Book:
Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Barbara Kingsolver and environmental educator Lily Kingsolver, COYOTE’S WILD HOME takes readers into the woods, meadows, and streams of an Appalachian forest where a girl and a coyote pup each find their first woodland adventures. On their separate journeys into the wilderness with a beloved family member, the intertwined paths of child and coyote will surprise and enchant young readers. With its richly detailed illustrations by Paul Mirocha and gentle biology lessons, this story of two young explorers invites readers to imagine wilderness as a place to be protected, loved, and shared.
When humans occupy wild land, wild animals are forced out of their wilderness habitats and have no choice but to move into suburbs and cities which can be frightening to many people. Recently, the sight of coyotes in neighborhood parks and streets has thrust these animals into the spotlight, but these incidents are reminders of the urgent need to protect wilderness for future generations.
About the Authors:
Barbara Kingsolver was trained as a biologist prior to her career as a writer of bestselling novels, poetry, and nonfiction. Her work is widely translated and has earned literary awards and a devoted readership at home and abroad. In 2000 she was awarded the National Humanities Medal, our country’s highest honor for service through the arts. She and her husband live on a farm in the mountains of southwestern Virginia, a home they share with sheep, poultry, and countless wild creatures including coyotes. This is her first book for children.
Lily Kingsolver grew up in southwest Virginia, where the Appalachian Mountains ignited her passion for wild creatures and the places they live. She has shared her love of the wild as a naturalist and educator in state parks and zoos in southwest Virginia and the Space Coast of Florida, where she is currently working on a graduate degree in environmental education. She lives in Florida with her husband, dog, and several reptiles. This is her first published book.
