Nationally acclaimed for his political commentary, James Jackson Kilpatrick wrote THE FOXES' UNION fro the perspective of his home in Scrabble, Virginia. With humor that ranges fro gentle to outrageous, and with moving insights into nature and the human condition. He has captured in masterful prose the simple things that matter most.

"Except for a few columns that have been folded in verbatim, this little book is written mostly from scratch. Part I is largely personal stuff, dealing with White Walnut Hill and our life there. Part II has to do with Rappahannock County and the Rappahannockers. Part III includes some observations on birds and animals, among them members of Local 211, the Foxes' Union. Part IV covers the black-eyed pea and other botanical glories. Part V is a lumping together of reflections that didn't fit anywhere else."
