Originally published in the 1930s. Story of a roebuck and his life during the changing seasons along the shores of the Baltic. The patience of the deerstalker and the wariness of the hunted buck is interwoven in this story of the growth, maturity and old age of the forest roebuck. The author has a highly developed understanding of animals and a remarkable technique for expressing the fruits of his observations. Illustrated with full page drawings. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
