Question by John S: Any good books about a fox that is relatively about life in the wild?
I love foxes and reading is pretty nice. Any good books where they follow a fox in the wild or something where you can get an idea of life as one. The only one I know is “Hunted” by N. Browne. Thanks

Answer by YoSafBridg
one or two of these might work:

The fox woman
In a novel set in medieval Japan, a young fox kit becomes enamored with a Japanese nobleman and will stop at nothing, even magic and sorcery, to win his heart.

The plague dogs by Richard Adams
A large black mongrel named Rowf and a white terrier named Snitter escape from an animal experiment center in England’s Lake District and, aided by a cunning fox, learn to live on their own, until rumors of slaughtered sheep and bubonic plague-carrying dogs transform them into fugitives.

The foxes of firstdark
This novel by a Booker Prize nominee is an engaging saga of two lovers paired for life, bound by strong family ties and firmly united by their terror of a common enemy. A familiar scenario, perhaps, but here the devoted couple is a pair of foxes–O-ha, a vixen born in the British countryside, and her second mate, Camio, who, after escaping from the zoo, becomes a streetwise scavenger in the suburbs. O-ha’s first mate was killed by fox hunters and her initial litter froze to death. Her life with Camio in Trinity Wood is equally hazardous; daily survival is difficult. Yet the most ominous threat is from Sabre, a vengeful ridgeback hound bent on destroying them both. The author endows his anthropomorphized characters with complex emotions, clear thinking, reasoned judgment and a shared stock of ancient clan memories. Their adventures and the misadventures of their pups are seen through a framework of their own mythology, a world governed by rituals and traditions that began at the time of creation: firstdark. A true sense of peril, a wry observance of their other enemy, man, some quixotic digressions into the lives of their offspring and avoidance of sentimentality all combine to invite comparison to Watership Down.

9tail Fox by Jon Courtenay Grimwood
Grimwood, best known for his alternate-history Arabesk trilogy (Effendi, etc.), manages a new wrinkle on a classic noir plot line with this intriguing paranormal mystery. San Francisco police sergeant Bobby Zha refuses to accept the department’s conclusion that Natalie Persikov, a young Russian girl who has no familiarity with firearms, managed to kill an intruder, but he himself is gunned down in a sordid back alley before he can prove Persikov’s innocence. After experiencing a mystical vision of a nine-tailed white fox, Zha regains consciousness in another man’s body, a continent away from everything he knows. Using his new identity, Zha returns home in time to attend his own funeral and investigate his own murder.

Spirit Fox by Mickey Zucker Reichert and Jennifer Wingert
In a magic-filled land, Kiarda, a woman of noble lineage, absorbs the spirit of her birth-linked fox at his moment of death and almost leads her people to the brink of war.

The old country by Mordicai Gerstein
A grandmother tells her story of being tricked into exchanging her young body with that of a fox and trying to get it back while a war tore apart her home and her country.

A taste for rabbit by Linda Zuckerman
Quentin, a rabbit who lives in a walled compound run by a militaristic government, must join forces with Harry, a fox, to stop the sinister disappearances of outspoken and rebellious rabbit citizens.

Troll Bridge: a rock ‘n’ roll fairy tale by Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple
Sixteen-year-old harpist prodigy Moira is transported to a strange and mystical wilderness, where she finds herself in the middle of a deadly struggle between a magical fox and a monstrous troll.
