Coyote Weather is a spectacular re-creation of a lost but essential time in our history-California, the '60s, Viet Nam-nobody has ever captured it more accurately or written it with more understanding-from several different perspectives. A must read. Bravo! -- Lee Smith, author of Guests on Earth

This splendid novel describes the Vietnam generation's feelings about the war in Southeast Asia, the draft, relationships, the counterculture, psychedelia, women's issues, commitments, sexual tensions, and the looming uncertainty of where we were headed as individuals and a country. It's a trip, with all that and more combined in an artful, beautifully written journey. -- John Ketwig, author of ...and a hard rain fell: A G.I.'s True Story of the War in Vietnam.

A wonderful historical novel, filled with love, doubt, courage, defiance, war and peace, a desire to belong. The characters feel at once familiar and new, ordinary and complex, and so marvelously alive. A treasure of a book. - Kristina Gorcheva-Newberry, author of The Orchard

The Vietnam War rages through Amanda Cockrell's masterful novel, Coyote Weather, a story about young love in an impossible, chaotic, fear-driven time. A poignant, compassionate, and suspenseful read, I couldn't put it down. -- Elizabeth Poliner, author of As Close to Us as Breathing
