If you're ready to cry, laugh, then do it all over again, this is the book for you. Marshall Coates was never good at being a father. His daughter could attest to that. But when her husband suddenly dies, leaving her as emotionally devastated as Marshall was at her mother's passing years before, he comes immediately. There's just one problem: he doesn't know what to do with her son, his grandson, eleven-year-old March. The tug-of-war begins for this novice grandpa when March decides to play cupid and teach grumpy old grandpa to be chivalrous, and Annie, baker of heavenly pies, tries to coach Marshall on how to bond with an eleven-year-old boy. Marshall's heart might not be able to swell large enough for all this love. Can his loved ones teach the old dog a new trick? '...a lovely sensitive book for readers from teens to seniors.' —Rex McGee, Screenwriter,Pure CountryandWhere There's a Will

In The Voice of the Coyote, J. Frank Dobie melds natural history with tales and lore in articulating the complex and often contentious relationship between coyotes and humans. Based on his own life experiences in Texas and twenty-five years of research, Dobie forges a sympathetic and nuanced picture of the coyote prefiguring later environmental and conservation movements. He recognizes the impact of human action on the coyote while also examining the prominent role of the coyote in the myths and legends of the West.
