For the first month of her life, a young fox lives only in the den she shares with her four brothers. When at last they are ready to leave the den in late spring, Amber and the other kits overcome their fears quickly. In no time they are tumbling over each other in their eagerness to explore the delights of the world above. But playtime will soon be over. As the summer flies by, Amber's parents teach the lessons that are crucial to their survival. Foxes have many enemies, and they must learn to outwit foes stronger and faster than they are. By fall, Amber's parents have left, and her brothers have gradually gone their separate ways. Amber still has much to learn. Driven by hunger and fear, she will use all her cunning and every instinct she possesses to feed herself and stay safe. One day she will be ready to find a mate and raise a family of her own. Author Shirley Woods' love of the natural world shines in this accurate portrayal of a young fox's life. A wealth of factual information about foxes is carefully woven into a story filled with adventure and suspense.

Angling for Atlantic salmon by Shirley E Woods( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reappearance of the Atlantic salmon on the New England coast in recent years has awakened a desire in many fly fisherman to know more about 'Salmo salar'. This interest has prompted me to write 'Angling for Atlantic Salmon'. All the rivers mentioned are ones I have fished personally, and while a few famous ones are missing (such as the Moisie), they represent a fair cross section of salmon habitat on this continent. Should you be interested in wetting a line, most of these rivers may be fished by government permit or through a private outfitter. Throughout the text are suggestions and tips designed to help the novice on the right foot" -- Taken from Preface
