Bambi by Felix Salten

Not your Disney version of this classic story! Salten does an amazing, poetic job in giving voice to the animals of the story and painting a picture of undisturbed...and disturbed....nature. Interesting social commentary on the interaction between nature and man and between the various animals. Rather dark, at times...especially when Salten brings in the problem of a character coming to trust man too much.
