“Coyote Peterson’s Brave Adventures: Wild Animals in a Wild World” is a collection of short stories about Peterson’s run-ins with all manner of critters (i.e., not just insects). He’s had exciting encounters with grizzly bears, gorillas, alligators, and other living things I don’t want to meet.

“Coyote Peterson’s Brave Adventures: Wild Animals in a Wild World” comes out September 12.
