Coyote Tales LIVE Storytelling

Coyote Tales are true stories told live, onstage without notes, props or accompaniments. Stories told must be based on the evening’s theme and be told within five minutes.

Phyllis’ ninth book tells the story of camels bought in the Middle East by the U.S. Government in 1858. The animals were used to explore the possibility of a military road between Albuquerque and the Colorado River–a waterless terrain. A road was built later and became the origin of Route 66. The book’s main characters are Geoffrey Scott–an abolitionist/road builder, a camel named Adababa, a Mojave Indian who has a mixed history with Geoffrey Scott, an angry polygamist in St. Thomas, Nevada, and his third wife, Sophia Hughes, who becomes the female lead in a love triangle.

Copies of Phyllis Barber’s novel, “The Desert Between Us,” John Branch’s, “The Last Cowboys” and and number of Lyman Hafen’s works will be available for sale at August 21st’s Coyote Tales event and at The Book Bungalow beginning in August. The Book Bungalow is an independent bookstore located in downtown St. George at the corner of 100 West and Tabernacle Street. They are open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm.
