She was as emotionally isolated as she was physically, but she viewed the house as a way station, a temporary rest stop where she could gather her nerves and fill out applications for what she hoped would be a real job that would help her fit into society. In the meantime, she taught remotely and led field classes in nearby Yellowstone National Park.Then one day she realized that a mangy-lookingfoxwas showing up on her property every afternoon at 4:15 p.m. She had never had a regular visitor before. How do you even talk to afox? She brought out her camping chair, sat as close to him as she dared, and began reading to him fromThe Little Prince. Her scientific training had taught her not to anthropomorphize animals, yet as she grew to know him, his personality revealed itself and they became friends.From thefox, Catherine learned the single most important thing about loneliness:we are never alone when we are connected to the natural world. Friends, however, cannot save each other from the uncontained forces of nature.Foxand Iis a poignant and remarkable tale offriendship, growth, and coping with inevitable lossand of how that loss can be transformed into meaning. It is both a timely tale of solitude and belonging as well as a timeless story of one woman whose immersion in the natural world will change the way we view our surroundingseach tree, weed, flower, stone, orfox.
