Written for a younger audience, On the Trail of the Fox gives a good, basic introduction to the red fox. The book accurately but briefly describes the animal, it´s range and habitat, it´s keen senses, and diet. The life cycle of the fox is particularly well covered, including courtship, birth, growth, and development of the pups. The text is concise, easy to read and understand.

While it can serve as a quick reference, the book´s greatest interest to older readers will probably be it´s fair number of colour photographs. A glossary and index are included. 48 pages.
