Albert Cutts is a tree feller. A fella who cuts down trees. Fog is a fox cub raised by a dingo.

All goes well until Albert has an accident ...

This is a story of courage, acceptance and respect. The dialogue is finely crafted and Indigenous cultural knowledge and awareness are seamlessly integrated into the story.
