And coyotes would come from their dens and make lean shadows on the starlit snow and send their hungry yelps echoing among the white hills. Next time he might let me get close enough for a shot. To the east is central Kansas, long accepted as the western limit of feasible agriculture. The wind was shaking the house so much that the dishes rattled on their shelves.
