by Charles G. D. Roberts

introduction by Brian Bartlett

An early, classic Canadian nature novel.

The wily, intelligent Red Fox takes on the Canadian wilderness in this classic novel by Charles G. D. Roberts. He tangles with numerous foes, including bear, goshawk, lynx, skunk and owl. Red Fox (with kits and mate) flees a major fire and has several encounters with hounds and men. In this 1905 novel G. D. Roberts set out to make Red Fox and the animal world around him more understandable to his readers, and to encourage awareness of the cruelty involved in humanity's relationship to wild animals.
