Vulpes the Red Fox Characters Ç 2 Vulpes is the smartest pup of the litter and he grows into a fast uick witted fox whose abi. So this is the story as you likely know of a red fox named Vulpes who is born in the developing Maryland woodlands along the Potomac River and grows to be a legend for his beauty intelligence and strength His real life and his fabled life interweave and though there is some straining of this relationship between the fabular and the realistic narrative lines each meet where they develop into a cautionary tale and an important ode to a particular place and time Not a moment in time but an era before urban and suburban development all but destroyed the kind of wooded land where many fables are bornThis is one of those books that doesn t fall neatly into my idea of great fiction Not only does it walksa dubious line between anthropomorphizing fiction about animals and narrative non fiction about woodland areas but there were also moments where I thought Oh no this is dangerously close to tacky or oh no This is a little tacky Many individual animals are given names and that I found a bit distracting at times But the story remains fresh and compellingly tied to a living breathing landscape It does what it is doing well and with a uiet skillfulness The book begins the moment Vulpes is born Vulpes the Red Fox was born in a den in Maryland It was April The snow had gone The woods were cold and wet A chill rain splashed through the barren woodlands and filled the earth til it could hold no And ends the moment he dies I won t uote the last sentence but be prepared for some feelingsThere is something about the construction of the book I won t refer to it as simplicity because I no longer believe this kind of chronological storytelling is simple It can be made to look that way and close attention to natural detail and the particular way George explores the intellectual life of the fox that keeps it feeling old fashioned in a way and yet keeps it from feeling too datedHere is a bit about the author from wikipediaJean Carolyn Craighead was born in 1919 in Washington DC and raised in a family of naturalists4 Her father mother brothers Frank and John aunts and uncles were students of nature On weekends they camped in the woods near Washington climbed trees to study owls gathered edible plants and made fish hooks from twigs Her first pet was a turkey vulture George centered her life around writing and natureIn the end I think it is an important book both for drawing us into the vibrant ecosystems and experiencing it just as it is being destroyed in the name of development It really offering readers a sense of kinship with the wildlife and while the fox is clearly our hero we are meant to feel respect for both the wilderness and the farmers and trappers I think George does a beautiful job of describing the delicate balance at play between humans and the ecosystems they come in contact with Killing and dying isn t the bad thing in this book It is a natural part of life But it s also not something to be taken likely It s emotionally costly and ultimately can shatter the magic of the places we love Everyone thinks they want this handsome fox dead for the sport of it for his handsome coat but if they catch him they have a trophy and lose the vibrant beauty and also the magical myth of him There s something Buddhist in the attitude toward death and toward desire And I can t read a story like this without thinking of Faulkner s The Bear

Vulpes the Red Fox Characters Ç 2 Way at the last moment then he comes face to face with the hunter who is his greatest enemy. Vulpes played his part in this activity Each was intent on securing his own food or prey This was the normal cycle of the wild Hunters and hunted food or prey Some must perish that others might live Some found food in plants The carnivores lived upon the herbivores and so the cycle went on Those best able to cope with the world they lived in and satisfy their simple demands survivedFor the present Vulpes was the hunter perhaps in the morning he would become the huntedKindle location 1642 1646A heavy blanket of snow dampened all sounds No leaves were free to rattle across the woodland floor The snow lay on the tangled mats of the dormant honeysuckle and weighed the vines down The thick white cloak made grotesue figures that stood motionless on the woodland floor Black pools of water at the foot of snow rimmed falls in the tiny streams heightened the effect of the ghost like forest This was the woodland of the wild So unlike the same woodlot during the day When the protection of the vale of darkness hung over it the wild creatures of the woods came out from their hiding places to carry on their life At night the woods became a primeval forestKindle location 1649 1655
