Navigating The Coyotes In Our Presence
Navigating The Coyotes In Our Presence is written BY a survivor FOR survivors.The coyote is a metaphor for child molesters, pedophiles, rapists, and abusers. This memoir follows a four-year-old victim of sexual abuse through life and weaves the characteristics of the coyote, both natural and mythological, into the story. In the mythological sense, coyotes (if seen) represent the end of something or a new beginning. Using the coyote as the predator provides a profound twist on a devastating subject. As events unfold, the enduring question is: “Can I successfully navigate the coyotes in my presence?” (Hint: Survivors are as adaptable as their predators.)
