We are proud to announce that author Lucy Jones has been awarded the Roger Deakin Award for upcoming Elliott & Thompson title Foxes Unearthed: A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britain!

Awarded by The Society of Authors, the Roger Deakin Award assists writers with research costs – and Lucy is in fine company here! Previous winners include Helen Scales (Spirals in Time), Caspar Henderson (The Book of Barely Imagined Beings), and Rob Cowen (Skimming Stones and Other Ways of Being in the Wild).

In Foxes Unearthed, Lucy Jones investigates the truth about foxes in a media landscape that often carries complex agendas, holding perceived wisdom and myths up to the microscope of modern science. This beautifully designed, compelling narrative adds a depth to the often contentious debate on foxes, asking what the British attitudes towards the Red Fox say about us – and, ultimately, our wider relationship with the natural world.

Foxes Unearthed is out on the 14th of April 2016 – preorder your copy here!
