Foxes Unearthed longlisted for The Wainwright Book Prize
We are thrilled to announce that Foxes Unearthed: A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britain by journalist Lucy Jones has been longlisted for The Wainwright Book Prize 2017!
In Foxes Unearthed, Lucy brings us the rich and fascinating tale of one of Britain’s most loved – and most vilified – wild animals: the fox. Delving into fact, fiction, folklore and her own family history, she travels the length of Britain to interview scientists, huntsmen, farmers and activists, including well-known names such as Chris Packham, Ricky Gervais and Roger Scruton. 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.
The Wainwright Book Prize celebrates the best books about nature, the outdoors and UK travel and is awarded in association with The National Trust. Congratulations, Lucy!
