The Prince of the Forest
Bambi's life in the woods begins happily. There are forest animals to play with -- Friend Hare, the chattery squirrel, the noisy screech owl, and Bambi's twin cousins, frail Gobo and beautiful Faline.
But winter comes, and Bambi learns that the woods hold danger -- and things he doesn't understand. The first snowfall makes food hard to find. Bambi's father, a handsome stag, roams the forest, but leaves Bambi and his mother alone.
Then there is Man. He comes to the forest with weapons that can wound an animal. He does terrible things to Gobo, to Bambi's mother, and even to Bambi. But He can't keep Bambi from growing into a handsome stag himself, and becoming...the Prince of the Forest.

Beautiful and really touching.

crankylibrarian Apr 28, 2013

Forget the Disney movie, the cute little bunnies and skunks and birdies. This is "nature red in tooth and claw" an astonishing, terrifying portrayal of life as prey. Salten had a gift for describing the instincts that govern wild animals: desperate hunger, paralyzing fear, overpowering lust. When Bambi challenges another buck for Faline he doesn't think, he reacts instantly with blinding rage. The scent of Man in the forest drives the animals into a frenzy, yet the domesticated dogs follow and kill for the hunters with a blind pitiless devotion that recalls storm troopers and the Clone army. Man is an otherworldly demon in this universe, wielding random destruction, "the only animal that can kill from a distance".
