      Fox 8 is a gud riter and I wud lik to reed mor of his werks. This is a bittersweet look at a young fox's loss of innocence. On the face of it the story is about ecotone and humanity's straight-up ambivalence to the natural world, but deeper down it's a coming of age story about the traumas that shape us and the bewilderment at the world that inflicted them. Foxfire 8 $ This eighth volume celebrates the artistic and skillful heritage of Appalachia, featuring sections on the Black Community in Appalachia, Southern folk pottery – from glazed snake jars to swirlware to flowerpots, pug mills, ash glazes, groundhog kilns, face jugs, churns, and roosters – and tales of mule swapping and chicken.

He lives happily with other foxes in a forest. However, one day, humans destroy the forest and build a shopping mall on the location.

    Fox 8 is a clever autodidact, ever curious. He has learned to "rite" and speak "Yuman," in hope that the humans might better understand foxes. Saunders's short story fable is both charming and serious in capturing Fox 8's voice and his desire to save his fellow foxes. Fox 8: A Story () About book: Okay, let's get this out of the way.
