Salten, Felix – Bambi
Publisher: Grosset Dunlap | 1929 | ISBN: N/A | ASIN: B00159GKYK | English | File type: PDF | 191 pages | 14.1 mb
The classic tale of the baby deer who grows up to be King of the Forest.
Disney’s version of “Bambi” has led us to believe that this is a children’s storyit is not. This is an exquisitely-written description of forest life from the perspective of the animals who live there. Salten leads us into the deepest woods and shows with compelling beauty the trials of survival, predator/prey relations, and the consequences of human intervention into their world.
The brief chapter on a conversation between two oak leaves questioning the concept of mortality as winter approaches should be read from every pulpit in the world.
Although it is easy to manipulate the story in order to squeeze tears from the books episodes, it would be a mistake to overlook the striking beauty of Salten’s unique prose.
