The coyote is one of few species that can quickly adapt to a multitude of different environments. Along with humans, they have thrived during the Anthropocene. Constantly pushing the boundaries of what lands can and cannot be inhabited, coyotes dwell in areas that blur the distinction between wild and urban. In American Coyote Nicholas Albrecht explores the landscape in search of places where humans – like coyotes – once settled but appear now to have moved on, places that linger on the fringe between the urban and wild environment. Given the reality of environmental precarity, the need to reevaluate where we settle has become a constant factor in the lives of many.
