あらすじ・解説

A memoir about the friendship between a solitary woman and a fox, for listeners of Wild and H Is for Hawk.

Catherine Raven left home at 15, fleeing an abusive, disdainful father and an indifferent mother. More comfortable in nature than among people, she worked as a National Park ranger, eventually earning a PhD in biology. She built a house on an isolated plot of land in Montana, teaching remotely and leading field classes. One day, she realized that the mangy-looking fox who had been appearing on her property was now showing up every day at 4:15 p.m. She had never had a regular visitor before. How do you even talk to a fox? One day she brought out her camping chair, sat as close to him as she dared, and began reading to him from The Little Prince. Her scientific training had taught her not to anthropomorphize animals, but as she grew to know him, his personality revealed itself - and he became her friend. But friends cannot always save each other from the uncontained forces of nature. Fox & I is a poignant and dramatic tale of friendship, transformation, and coping with inevitable loss - and of how that loss can become meaning. It is also the introduction of an original, imaginative, stunning literary voice.

Fox for a Friend

An excellent take off a young naturalist who lived out in the Woods far from any human who is attentive to the creatures who Share her domain. One of them, a 6 lb red fox noticed her and selects her to be an occasional companion. This is not at all about turning a wild fox into a pet, but rather about turning a wild young woman into an understanding friend. On the process it opens the reader’s imagination to what is possible between humans and there wild animals who befriend us.

Worth the listen!

As a biologist myself, I truly enjoyed this heartwarming, educational story and found myself relating to much that was written.

The narrator was absolutely excellent! Hard to believe she wasn’t the actual author!

Well Written, Poignant Story

The author’s attitude towards “pets” rankled me throughout the book. Not all “kept” dogs are “terriers in tartan”. And many “kept dogs” are indeed appreciated for their dog attributes, including amazing breed specific traits. I found it arrogant of her to say that a pet, as an owned animal, not free animal, cannot be a friend. She may have a rich life, but she is blind to the mutual richness that others experience with beloved pets.

De gustibus non disputandem est

But, for my taste, this effort is not recommended. Unless, of course, you cotton to credulous tales of oversold wonder, told in empurpled prose that will be familiar to any reader of high school creative writing journals.
