Summary
For the first month of her life, a young fox lives only in the den she shares with her four brothers. When at last they are ready to leave the den in late spring, Amber and the other kits overcome their fears quickly. In no time they are tumbling over each other in their eagerness to explore the delights of the world above. But playtime will soon be over. As the summer flies by, Amber's parents teach the lessons that are crucial to their survival. Foxes have many enemies, and they must learn to outwit foes stronger and faster than they are. By fall, Amber's parents have left, and her brothers have gradually gone their separate ways. Amber still has much to learn. Driven by hunger and fear, she will use all her cunning and every instinct she possesses to feed herself and stay safe. One day she will be ready to find a mate and raise a family of her own. Author Shirley Woods' love of the natural world shines in this accurate portrayal of a young fox's life. A wealth of factual information about foxes is carefully woven into a story filled with adventure and suspense. Young readers will be entertained, but they will come away with a greater understanding and respect for these often misunderstood creatures
