Wide Reeds, Arizona, is a small town on the Navajo reservation that you won’t find on any tourist map. The people who live there keep their secrets, their dreams, and their fears to themselves. But when a stranger with gold and turquoise eyes hitchhikes into town, the people of Wide Reeds learn that their secrets are no longer safe. Coyote (Ma’ii) - the trickster, thief, warrior, wizard, coward, clown, and savior - has come to call; and over the course of a year, life becomes strangely wonderful and terrifying.
In nine short stories and a novella that have been called part Sherman Alexie and part Stephen King, Coyote Tales leads listeners through the harsh and beautiful world of the modern Navajo Nation. Tracing the traditional yearly cycle of Early Dawn, Blue Daylight, and Evening Twilight, the separate paths of each story lead to the same Folding Darkness. And the only way out of that darkness is to follow the tracks of Coyote.
“With Coyote Tales, Jim Bihyeh spins a powerful series of tales filled with magic and mystery. Highly recommended!” (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author)
“These stories are incredibly rich in mythic imagery and detail, placing ancient spirit world narratives and magical combat into very contemporary settings.” (South Dakota Magazine)
