How Do You Even Talk To A Fox?

Heads up bookworms! Have we got a recommendation for you! If youve ever wanted to read about the unlikely friendship that could develop between a fox and aformer Yellowstone National Park Ranger, nows your chance!

After completing her PhD in Biology, Catherine Raven built herself a tiny cottage isolated in Montana, as you do. Then one day she noticed a mangy little fox was showing up at her cottage every evening at 4:15 pm exactly. But how do you even talk to a fox?

Shed never had a regular visitor before, so she did the cutest thing imaginable she brought out her camping chair, sat as close to the little guy as she dared, and began reading to him fromThe Little Prince.

She was sure to be respectful of the wild red yearling, having learned from her scientific study not to anthropomorphizeanimals. That basically means she didnt assign human characteristics to him or assume what hed like. Over time, a friendship bloomed between the two, and she really grew to recognize his unique personality.

Though she had been feeling lonely up in that cottage, her furry friend taught her that none of us are ever really alone, not when were connected to nature. As isolated as we may feel sometimes, theres always life and potential friends all around us in every tree, bird, flower, and fox.

Catherines poetically rich and touching memoir, Fox & I: An Uncommon Friendship, meditates on such relationships. It touches on the wonders that can be achieved when humans honor rather than dominate nature.

All these scenes work in the narrative to build a sense of camaraderie between Raven and Fox; collectively, they stand as a testament to the meaning and beauty in the small and seemingly insignificant moments in life.
