Coyote in Love
Coyote in Love is “a tale of love and the way things came to be.” In many Native American stories of creation, Coyote proudly takes his place as the ultimate trickster, the mischievous hero whose lessons may even include painful lessons for the unwary. Mindy Dwyer’s retelling of a Northwest coyote legend allows readers young and old to meet that same colorful and wily creature, but this time made vulnerable himself by love. Children will learn from the “Old Ones” how a lake with never-ending depth and the bluest waters—Oregon’s Crate Lake—was formed by a flood of tears from heartbroken Coyote.
