Sizing guide
Fox World, based on true events, takes the reader under the canopy of an urban forest on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. for a year-long walk with a weary sales executive and his muse, a wild red fox. Aged, ill and injured, both fox and man seek healing in their journey, not only for themselves, but for the ecologically stressed forest which is under siege. They are joined on their five-hundred-mile walkabout by the fox's forest friends - owl, buck deer, hawk, blue heron, and raccoon, and each animal's story illustrates why this small forest is so soothing and majestic in its allure. Starting in brutally cold winter, followed by the wettest summer on record, fox and man face daunting life challenges on their walks, from heart arrhythmia which ends the executive's career to a coyote attack and critical illnesses faced by the elderly fox. And through these traumatic events, the two bond for survival, and the fox's wild perspective teaches his human friend unforgettable lessons about healing, coping, serenity, wonderment, mindfulness, and simple treasures (e.g., the sun setting atop the great oaks, an owl serenade under moon beams, a shared cup of bison bone broth on an icy day). Drawn in by the plight of the fox's forest as destruction looms, the man decides to take a stand and help the fox and his animal friends. Richly graced with gorgeous nature photos and infused with insights that can only be imparted by those who have come to genuinely appreciate life, Fox World is an exhilarating walk in the woods that you'll never forget.
