Discover the hidden world of the fox

"An ode to this familiar yet mysterious creature. ... The sight of foxes can lift Brand's prose into poetry. ... Brand is by turns lyrical, salty, funny and scholarly as she describes the nuances of fox existence.” —New York Times Book Review

The fox. For thousands of years myth and folklore have celebrated its cunning intelligence. Today the red fox is the nature's most populous carnivore, its dancing orange tail a common sight in backyards. Yet who is this wild neighbor, truly? How do we negotiate this uneasy new chapter of an ancient relationship? Join British ecologist Adele Brand on a journey to discover the surprising secrets of the fabled fox, the familiar yet enigmatic creature that has adapted to the human world with astonishing—some say, unsettling—success.

Brand has studied foxes for twenty years across four continents—from the Yucatán rainforest to India's remote Thar Desert, from subarctic Canada to metropolitan London. Her observations have convinced her that the fox is arguably the most modern of all wildlife, uniquely suited to survival in the rapidly expanding urban/wild interface. Blending cutting-edge science, cultural anthropology, and intimate personal storytelling drawn from her own remarkable fieldwork, The Hidden World of the Fox is Brand's rich and revelatory portrait of the extraordinary animal she has devoted her life to understanding.

ADELE BRAND met her first fox as a child in England's Surrey Hills, a fragile border between urban London and the rural southeast. Now a mammal ecologist, she has led research in five countries. She is passionate about connecting people with wildlife.
