Hero or villain? Few animals divide opinion like the Red Fox. This most successful of the world's wild canids has lived alongside people from time immemorial. Celebrated by some for its resourcefulness and lush pelt, reviled by others for plundering chicken runs and overturning bins, it has worked its way deep into Western. Behind the folklore and tabloid headlines, however, lies a remarkable natural history success story. In Spotlight: Foxes Mike Unwin explores how the Red Fox's versatility has allowed it to thrive across the northern hemisphere, from desert and mountain to farmland and urban jungle. This informative ebook covers all aspects of the Red Fox biology and lifestyle, including hunting and caching food, defending a territory, raising a litter and understanding the secrets of its complex vocalisations and body language. Finally, he examines the complex, often troubled relationship that the Fox has enjoyed and both endured with humankind, and suggests what the future might hold. The new Spotlight series introduces readers to the lives and behaviours of our favourite animals with eye-catching, colour photography and informative expert text.

La apasionante historia de un prisionero de guerra que escapó más de doscientas veces... y volvió por amor. Jim Greasley es un joven soldado británico confinado en un campo de prisioneros de los alemanes en Silesia, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Jim está decidido a sobrevivir a las crueldades y a la degradación a la que le someten sus captores. Pero además se ha enamorado. Su obsesión por Rosa, una joven intérprete que trabaja en el campo, hará que ponga en riesgo su vida una y otra vez. Una obsesión sólo comparable con su empeño de luchar precisamente contra la patria de la mujer a la que ama y, al mismo tiempo, salvar a sus compañeros de desgracia. Los pájaros también cantan en el infierno es una historia real, relatada como la más apasionante de las novelas. Una historia sobre el bien y el mal, sobre el deseo y la esperanza, sobre el heroísmo y el poder del amor. Opinión: «Una historia espléndida, apasionante y de trama impecable.» The Telegraph
