When city girl Shreve Stockton set out to ride her Vespa from San Francisco to New York, she never imagined she would end up making a log cabin in Wyoming her home, falling in love with a trapper, and working as a ranch hand. She also could not have predicted adopting Charlie, an orphaned coyote pup. In a world where coyotes are hunted as killers, Stockton and Charlie have faced challenges-as well as joys-throughout their first year. Operating Instructions meets Marley and Me in this charming life-lesson book about life, love, and the bond between humans and nature. The Daily Coyote was inspired by Stockton's blog of the same name. Wildly popular and praised by Rosie O'Donnell, James Wolcott of Vanity Fair, and the Los Angeles Times, the site receives over a million hits per month and was nominated for a 2007 Weblog of the Year Award only a month after its inception. Numerous media outlets, from People to NPR, can't wait to feature Stockton and Charlie. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/19/2014

    " Beautiful (stunningly so) photography and an interesting story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryann | 2/17/2014

    " This book was so easy to read, and yet so profound. But the author doesn't beat you over the head with her insights into sharing a life with an animal. She states her ideas simply and clearly and uses wonderful examples. And the photography is amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 2/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this, mostly because it reminded me of home. The wide open spaces, the friendly and helpful neighbors, the weather and the beautiful landscapes...and I love the pictures in the book as well. It's home. The story is also pretty sweet and pretty educational in some ways. But it does make me a bit homesick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 2/10/2014

    " So far, really good. Easy to read and a wonderful story of loyalty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison Sattinger | 1/29/2014

    " Amazing and inspiring!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 1/27/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this work of non-fiction (short bio with photos, basically a year in the life). I read this because it was in the house and it was raining... and I was surprised to find I had trouble putting it down. The author has a very strong personality that was communicated well (between the lines) through her writing. I did not like or agree with the author at all but the book was compelling. It would make a great quick read for a book group... this is one of those books people are going to take away very different things and discussion would be interesting. Great photos. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 1/22/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book - I was mesmerized by it. I had to search out on AbeBooks.com to find a hardcover edition to buy and I can't wait for it to come so I can see the pictures. I listened to this book and the narrator was excellent - but I longed to see the pictures. I did go on-line to her blog and saw a lot of the photos there but it would have been better to see them as the story moved along. Just a fascinating tale of love and growth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 1/19/2014

    " This book is about a woman who adopts an orphan coyote pup and how she lives in a remote area of Wyoming. "

    " bought it as a christmas gift and had to take a peek inside. didn't think i'd get sucked in since i follow the site but there was so much more here! had to finish the whole thing before gifting it! is that wrong? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jia-yi | 12/29/2013

    " Lovely story (I am a HUGE fan of Stockton's blog), one star taken off for less-than-stellar writing, though it beats Harry Potter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geneva | 12/25/2013

    " A very interesting book about raising a coyote pup she called Charlie. The book is a meditation on the nature of wildness versus domestication, of nature versus nurture,and of forgiveness, loyalty and love in all its forms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/13/2013

    " A short quick read--two days. Stockton's descriptions of the alpha-role were insightful as well as her friend's (hunting guide) viewpoint of greedy hunters. Her courage and tenacity for solving her daily problems gave me new resolve. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/11/2013

    " Intriguing, very enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caryn | 12/8/2013

    " I love reading about animals but this was a tough realistic book about what it is like living in the "wilds" of Wyoming. This woman raised a coyote in a part of the US that routinely shoots them because they kill sheep. It is an amazing story and the star of the book does not die at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 4/25/2011

    " An interesting autobiography, covering a one to two-year period in the author's life. With little money, she moves to a place she loves and gradually discovers that happiness is a balance of selfishness and selflessness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 3/3/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dgoll | 2/17/2011

    " Lovely book about the relationship between the author and her pet coyote. The setting is beautiful and the growth in both her and her coyote and the relationship they develop is very inspirational. I read this to my 11 year old son and he loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 2/16/2011

    " Such an interesting and heart warming story. I really liked it! If you like animals, especially of the canine variety, this book is for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/6/2010

    " A former New Yorker living in Wyoming raises a coyote from small puphood. Very entertaining. Lots of information about living with a coyote and the flavor of life in Wyoming. Definitely too cold for me. "

    " Wonderful book on the life of raising a coyote. The interactions that really are with any canine one raises. It was as though I was reading the story of me raising my golden, who is just as silly in spirit as Charlie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 8/2/2010

    " I liked the story, although it was a bit overwrought at times. Didn't love the author "
