From the publisher

"I adore the fox for its magnificence; I hate the fox for killing my chickens.
To love and loathe the fox is a British condition."

The fox is our apex predator, our most beautiful and clever killer. We have witnessed its wild touch, watched it slink by bins at night and been chilled by its high-pitched scream. And yet we long to stroke the tumbling cubs outside their tunnel homes and watch the vixen stalk the cornfield.

There is something about foxes. They captivate us like no other species.

Exploring a long and sometimes complicated relationship, The Wild Life of the Fox captures our love - and sometimes loathing - of this magnificent creature in vivid detail and lyrical prose.
