Foxes Unearthed : A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britain, Hardback

Foxes Unearthed : A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britain Hardback



As one of the largest predators left in Britain, the fox is captivating: a comfortably familiar figure in our country landscapes; an intriguing flash of bright-eyed wildness in our towns.; Yet no other animal attracts such controversy, has provoked more column inches or been so ambiguously woven into our culture over centuries, perceived variously as a beautiful animal, a cunning rogue, a vicious pest and a worthy foe.

As well as being the most ubiquitous of wild animals, it is also the least understood.; In Foxes Unearthed Lucy Jones investigates the truth about foxes in a media landscape that often carries complex agendas.

Delving into fact, fiction, folklore and her own family history, Lucy travels the length of Britain to find out first-hand why these animals incite such passionate emotions, revealing our rich and complex relationship with one of our most loved - and most vilified - wild animals.

This compelling narrative adds much-needed depth to the debate on foxes, asking what our attitudes towards the red fox say about us - and, ultimately, about our relationship with the natural world.
