“The canyons of southern Utah are giving birth to the Coyote Clan – hundreds, maybe even thousands of individuals who are quietly subversive on behalf of the land.
Members of the clan are not easily identified, but there are clues. You can see it in their eyes. They are joyful and they are fierce. The Coyote Clan are a raucous bunch: they have drunk from desert potholes and belched forth toads.
The Coyote Clan is also serene. They can float on their backs down the length of any river or lose entire afternoons in the contemplation of stone.”
