My reading experience of this was somewhat ruined by the Italian publisher titling this short story "Le ragazze bufalo" (Buffalo Gals). Because of this I didn't realise the title was a reference to the song Coyote sings and kept expecting Buffalo people to pop up and have a relevant role in the story, which lead to a totally unfair sense of disappointment when I got to the ending and there was still no trace of buffalo girls.
Putting that aside, the story is that kind of fantasy slice of life which I adore. The rating is more of a 3.5 stars, and it is possible I would have rated it higher if my reading hadn't been spoiled by wondering when the buffalo girls would have appeared.
I found myself wanting to read more, but not as it has happened with other short stories which give a glimpse of a universe so beautiful you crave more stories set there: the story felt cramped and rushed. I don't think a short story was the most suitable medium to express it. I could see the concept being expanded into a children or YA novel. There is definitely enough material to expand the story in a novel format, which would allow to better explore character development and the background myths. I was thinking about a children's novel because I think it is a coming of age story, in a way.
