StoryGraph Saturday: The Hidden World of the Fox

StoryGraph Saturday is a weekly thing where I randomly choose a book from my To Read pile on StoryGraph and show it off to both remind myself that it’s there and to show it to you, Dear Reader, in case you might find it interesting, too.


The Hidden World of the Fox
by Adele Brand
Nonfiction/Nature
224 pages

From The StoryGraph: Ecologist Adele Brand has devoted her life to understanding the fabled yet enigmatic fox. Now she reveals their secrets in this extraordinary portrait of our most remarkable wild neighbors..

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.


While I love cats first and foremost, I love dogs, too, and after several brief encounters with many of the urban foxes that live in my community, when I saw this book at the library I knew I would want to read it. It’s just a matter of borrowing it and giving it a try. It’s short, so it shouldn’t be a problem to get through it in a weekend.

  1. This one caught my eye, as well. I absolutely love seeing healthy foxes out and about, especially out in the woods when hiking. Granted, it’s not common, they tend to stay well hidden, but that just makes seeing them all the more exciting. Can’t wait to read your thoughts on the book if you get to it.
