A Black Fox Running is a beautiful lost classic of nature writing which sits alongside Tarka the Otter and Watership Down . . .
This is the story of Wulfgar, the dark-furred fox of Dartmoor, and of his nemesis, Scoble the trapper, in the seasons leading up to the pitiless winter of 1947. As lyrical in its descriptions of the natural world as it is perceptive its portrayal of damaged humanity, it is both a portrait of place and a gripping story of survival.
‘A breathtakingly beautiful novel, this lost classic of nature writing is the book that made me a writer’ Melissa Harrison
