God's Dog: Conversations with Coyote by Webster Kitchell
Pickup currently unavailable
In Native American traditions, Coyote is the Trickster--the one you want to avoid but love to hear stories about. In the Aztec tradition, Coyote is "God's Dog." As a minor deity, Coyote is at home in the world we know and in the world of magic and the gods. In this series of coyote adventures, he gets involved with a parish minister in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They meet for donuts and go on drives through the desert and mountains in an old VW Thing. They discuss just what you'd expect form a minor deity and a philosophical clergyman--death. lying, progress, why Jesus was crucified, what money will buy, and the nature of the universe.
