War of the Foxes is a book about how an ambitious young woman, Thalia, attempts to break free from her childhood in a small town and make something of herself. She leaves for college and becomes involved with a group of people who are trying to start their own business.
While she is away from home, her father gets sick and her family needs more money than they can earn working on the farm. Her parents ask her to come home and help them out, but she refuses because she has dreams of becoming an entrepreneur.
Thalia returns home anyway when she finds out that her father has cancer, which he refuses treatment for because it will cost too much money that he doesn’t have. She also learns that there is a war going on between foxes who live in the mountains around her town and wolves who live in cities nearby. The wolves want to take over these fox territories so they can expand their own lands. The foxes don’t want this happening because they would lose their homes if that happened.

About The Book War of the Foxes Epub
In this long-awaited follow-up to Crush, Yale Series of Younger Poets prize-winner Richard Siken turns toward the problems of making and representation, in an unrelenting interrogation of our world of doublings. In this restless, swerving book simple questions—such as, Why paint a bird?—are immediately complicated by concerns of morality, human capacity, and the ways we look to art for meaning and purpose while participating in its—and our own—invention.
The War of the Foxes: A History of the Spanish Conquest of Mexico, by William H. Prescott
History has a way of repeating itself. This is true for many things—from war to disease to the way people treat each other. It’s also true for the way in which we tell stories. Take, for example, The War of the Foxes: A History of the Spanish Conquest of Mexico, by William H. Prescott.
The book opens with a quote from Don Quixote: “It is a common saying that all are not friends who speak one language; but when two men are bound together by a great affection, it seems as if they understood one another without speaking at all; and this must be said of friendship between man and woman.”
This book will draw you in with its descriptions of war and conquest, but it will also make you think about how friends can understand one another without saying anything. These friends—Hernando Cortés and Francisco Pizarro—are two men bound together not only by their mutual love for conquest but also by their shared desire to bring peace through violence.
