An astonishing true tale of a naturalist's friendship with a wild fox. Catherine Raven craves the solitude and close connection to nature that she finds in her cabin in a desolate part of eastern Montana. When a fox, who is clearly more eager for social interaction than she is, seeks her out, she submits to a very real friendship with him. She does so with trepidation because her fellow scientists generally disapprove of such doings. To her surprise, Fox is a true friend who teaches her how to find her way to a future that offers her a meaningful life. Unforgettable.
