Joyce Stranger was the pen name of Joyce Muriel Wilson. She was brought up in an area she described as on "the borderline between town and country," with "so many birds it was impossible to sleep through the dawn chorus." Her family spent holidays in the British countryside, where she avidly watched wildlife. She began writing about animals and published her first article in 1949. Her first book, The Running Foxes (1965), was a great success, and was followed by her first horse title, Breed of Giants (1967). Over the years, she published some 70 books, including two children’s pony books and eight horse stories aimed at adults. She also wrote Stranger than Fiction, a fictionalized account of the life of Elspeth Bryce Smith, a Welsh girl paralyzed by polio who eventually recovered enough to ride as a jockey, disguised as a man. In her later years, she worked as a dog behaviorist and trainer for obedience shows.

Mixed lot of stories by one of my favorite authors. Some I loved, some were just okay, but the collection is worth reading. I especially enjoyed the title story about a kitten that is rescued by a monastery full of monks.

Biography of a girl who wanted to ride and race horses despite her physical handicap and her family's disapproval. The story was engaging and interesting, all the more because it was based upon her journal entries.

Thoughtful story of a young man whose father is a gamekeeper at a rundown estate. The son loves the wild animals that his father is sworn to protect, but also those targeted for removal: a family of foxes.

Not the best work by this favorite author of mine, but still a good tale with realistic children, adults, and relationships. Oh, and a bit of the local fauna is included as well.

In this final book of the series, author Joyce Stranger has to make a decision: to double her "pack" by adding another dog, or quit field trial and obedience work altogether due to her dog Chita's advancing age. She takes on Josse, a young dog who with issues due to having several owners within a few months. Josse needs help adjusting, and how Joyce brings him closer to "normalcy" makes for an interesting and enjoyable story.

I wish there were more books about Josse.
