About this deal

Durante las primeras excursiones me preguntaba cómo había sobrevivido, era lo que más interés me suscitaba. Deer Management and Conservation Services (DMCS) offer a range of solutions for property owners across the whole of the UK landscape from mixed arable and woodland, to classic Highland terrain. Pero su manera de expresarse es cercana y entretiene, no hay una historia propiamente, pero logra intrigarte con los hechos que tienen lugar.

A hybrid animal, Deer Man has the antlered head of a great stag, a human's torso, and legs described as similar to either those of a man or deer. Yet a fleeting encounter with a young buck draws him into the woods around Louviers, France, and off he goes. He adapts to their way of life, learns to eat and sleep among them, and acquires a unique understanding of these extraordinary creatures. A couple of walkers nod in greeting as they pass, as if it’s customary for a wild deer to snooze in the lap of a human. Geoffroy menosprecia la sociedad del despilfarro y es crítico con una economía que amenaza con hundirse.He spends a good portion of the book moralising about human misbehaviour and mistreatment of nature (which obviously isn’t totally incorrect), but that is somewhat undermined by the hypocrisy and total lack of nuance / painting all of humanity except himself with the poison apple brush. Many, like Foster, who try to do this acknowledge that we need a disruption of power relations across the living world. Les autres apprendront beaucoup sur la forme, mais seront-ils étonnés de lire combien ces chevreuils sont intelligents, qu’ils ont des émotions, et comprennent celles des humains ? The author took me on a seven year journey into the woods of Normandy and showed me what it was like to live among Roe Deer. He uses “we” freely, not only to tell us what he and the deer are doing but in ways suggestive of emotional and psychic entanglement.

Struggling under the weight of the human world's expectations, he left civilization behind at 19 to live among them for seven years. As a reader I could not kick the feeling that there was more to this unusual story and that something was missing.

En su mochila encontramos: latas de conserva, ropa de abrigo, agua potable, las herramientas necesarias para sobrevivir en un medio hostil y, por supuesto, una cámara. Aangezien wij zelf ook opvallend veel herten zien de laatste tijd - op wandelingen maar zelfs soms vanop een baan of straat - beseffen we dat je waarschuwingen in het boek bewaarheid zijn geworden. And it is also one of those books that make me want to go and study ecology or get to know and work with plants and animals. This book was fantastical, heartwarming, (and at moments, heartbreaking), informative (but not in a dense way) and un-put-down-able. This is actually living full-time outdoors, as part of a group of roe deer in the forests of France.
