YA-- Macdonald has given to posterity his research which involved techniques for following foxes through the night. His work was enhanced by the latest in radiotagging, night vision binoculars, and a 15-year study using a succession of hand-reared cubs to act as "spies." This book is more than a definitive statement on the subject, for it offers a sensitivity to this beautiful, adaptable animal that is nearing extinction, written in the tone that a biographer would use when writing of a revered and beloved relative. The photographs, drawings, descriptions, diagrams, and the charting of behavior patterns provide readers with insight into the true nature of the elusive, intelligent, and little-known or understood fox. This book is sure to be in demand for years to come, a classic to be read again and again.
