This was for some reasons one of my favourites when I was a child. I kept reading the story of Domino, the Silver fox again and again.
It was a Czech translated, a book I inherited from my father. He liked it as a boy, too.
I only discovered yesterday, talking about this book, that Seton was originally English. But he is still an American writer, in my opinion. A very good one.
A nice little book, telling the life of Domino, a silverfox, how he grows up into a strong and beautiful animal, always quick witted and clever.
Although it is an old book, it's worth a read if you love animals and nature.
A beautiful book, filled with lovely drawings. I was first drawn to the fox on the cover (mine is a blue edition) and the repeated nature pictures. Usually you find a book with 'fox' in the title and it's about anything but, but this book is actually about foxes. The author has a grand way with writing, making everything poetic, but I enjoyed it anyway.

I'm glad I found this pretty little book (for $2, a bargain!) and it's definitely a five star book.

My second reading of the book. Still strongly impressed.
I really enjoyed this book, it kept me on my toes and the writing was excellent.
