Albert Cutts is a tree feller. A fella who cuts down trees. Fog is a fox cub raised by a dingo. He’s called a dox because people are suspicious of foxes and Albert Cutts owns the dingo and now the dox. Albert is a bushman and lives a remote life surrounded by animals and birds. All goes well until Albert has an accident ... This is a story of courage, acceptance and respect. It is reminiscent of the gentle story-telling style of Australian author Alan Marshall (I can jump puddles). The dialogue is finely crafted and Indigenous cultural knowledge and awareness are seamlessly integrated into the story.

Fog A Dox
This is the first of Bruce Pascoes books I've read and I loved it. I'll be reading the rest of them. He's instantly become one of my favourite authors.
The characters are loveable and well developed - I especially enjoyed being inside the mind of the dog a couple of times. Funny and sweet with beautiful descriptions of the Australian bush. It's great to discover a 'new' author. I'm only puzzled that I haven't heard more about Bruce Pascoe.
I'd thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys genuine Australian characters - sometimes the four-legged variety! - and heartwarming stories set in the Australian countryside. Easy to read and an engaging story.
