Dan Flores, the A. B. Hammond Professor Emeritus of Western History at the University of Montana, will give a talk entitled:

“Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History” (based on his recent book of the same title)

at 7:00PM Tuesday, February 6th in the Screening Room, Cornerstone Arts Building

Legends don’t come close to capturing the incredible story of the coyote in North America. In the face of centuries of campaigns of annihilation employing guns, gases, helicopters, and engineered epidemics, coyotes haven’t just survived, they’ve thrived, expanding across the continent from Alaska to New York. In the war between humans and coyotes, coyotes have won, hands-down. “Coyote America” is the illuminating five-million-year biography of this extraordinary animal, from its origins to its apotheosis.
