From the Publisher:
With simple beauty, Nancy Wood tells a loving story about a wise creature's last day, illuminated with masterful illustrations by Max Grafe.

Old Coyote's muzzle is turning white, and his steps are slow. He spends most of his time basking in the sun and remembering. Chasing rabbits, raising pups with Mrs. Coyote, gathering with his friends on the mountain and howling at the moon — it's been a long, full life, and he's grateful for it. But could it be time for him to take one last journey?
Annotation:
Old Coyote is about to die. He's "as old as coyotes get," and as he painfully hobbles across the desert he remembers when "his howl was so loud that even the earthworms up on the mountain could hear it." He communes with Mrs. Coyote one last time and bids farewell to his animal friends before slowly ascending a mountain, aware that he's "forgotten where he left his dreams." Muted impressionistic mixed-media illustrations accompany the text.
