He adapts to their way of life, learns to eat and sleep among them, and acquires a unique understanding of these extraordinary creatures. As he got older, he would disappear into the woods, drawn to the rhythms of animal life and away from the rules of a society he did not understand. Deer Man is a fascinating and spellbinding account of the ancient quest to reconnect with the natural world.

Als ik mezelf bekijk en hoeveel spullen ik heen-en-weer meesleep begrijp ik niet hoe de Hertenman dit over zovele hectare geregeld heeft gekregen. Charles Foster’s Being a Beast saw him live like a range of creatures, from otters and swifts, in a tragicomical rejoinder to the challenge thrown out by philosophers: “What is it like to be …” Such books are encounters, more than anything else, with sentience. Struggling under the weight of the human world's expectations, he left civilization behind at 19 to live among them for seven years. Reaching their vehicle, Heying and his companion were about to drive off when a Deer Man emerged from the shadows and began to lurch towards them.

Entre parenthèses : J’ai été surprise que Geoffroy Delorme s’est si souvent posé la question pourquoi Chévi se comportait de façon tellement familière avec lui. 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. There’s a dreamy moment halfway through Geoffroy Delorme’s brief, sensuous book in which one of the young deer he gets to know curls up beside him, its head resting on his leg. Pareil pour ceux qui aiment la nature, mais qui ne trouvent pas grave de bâtir un peu, un simple camping, ça ne fera pas de tort, tu verras », ou ceux qui disent qu’il faut une route, et ceux qui débroussaillent et prennent ainsi de l’alimentation précieuse à la nature, ou encore ceux qui enlèvent la nourriture aux arbres pour faire des pellets, tous ceux n’ont rien compris. I was really fascinated with this true story of a young Frenchman from Normandy who lived in the woods for 7 years with deer.

Yet one suspects this is the only kind of testimony that could come from someone who has, in many ways, eschewed the human world. El hombre corzo contempla la huella humana con otros ojos: a través de una fauna bella y sensible, amenazada por la industrialización de sus bosques.

One young buck is devastated when humans destroy his territory and he no longer has shelter or food or any chance of winning a mate. On les voit dans les prairies et potagers, non pas parce qu’il y en a trop, mais parce qu’ils ont trop peu de forêt / sous-bois / nourriture. Ainsi, l’activisme deviendra une source de conflits, conflits, conflits, d’angoisses, de tristesse, et une perte d’énergie incroyable.

Some of the photos, which are undoubtedly beautiful, seemed to be plonked into the book at random moments and not ones relating to the story itself. Varje dag var det en glädje att öppna boken, men glädjen var kortvarig då den bara handlar om en jöns som drar åt skogen där han ägnar sig åt att ge rådjur fruktiga namn.I sju år bor han i skogen med endast enstaka besök i civilisationen, för att tvätta kläder och bunkra mat. Alone in the forest with no tent, no shelter and not even a sleeping bag or blanket is an exercise in pure survival, and so Geoffroy follows the deer's behaviour closely. 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. For nature enthusiasts, conservation activists, animal lovers, and fans of books like Hermit In The Woods, Woodswoman, Untamed, or the memoirs of Jane Goodall and Diana Fossey, I HIGHLY recommend this book! I avoid my parents, who disapprove of my new man-of-the-woods lifestyle and have no qualms about saying so.

Et Geoffroy à la naissance, c’est comme… comme un enfant qui entend de la musique classique quand il est encore dans la matrice, ou dès la naissance, et qui devient musicien plus tard. Pensaba que sería una narrativa densa, un ensayo pausado que describe con detalle los hábitos de los corzos y los bosques casi mágicos de Normandía. We have provided contract management services for the Forestry Commission, Highland Council , Scottish Natural Heritage and Tillhill Economic Forestry alongside long term management commitments to many notable Highland Estates.While there we heard one ear-piercing screech or scream, almost a hunting screech of some sort that made my hair stand on end and gave me goose bumps even worse. Alone in the forest with no tent, no shelter and not even a sleeping bag or blanket is an exercise in pure survival, and so Geoffroy follows the deer’s behaviour closely. Han både tänker och gör tror jag, han tolkar också rådjurens kroppsspråk och beteende utifrån sin mänskliga hjärna och sina mänskliga erfarenheter. This is actually living full-time outdoors, as part of a group of roe deer in the forests of France. Coup de cœur pour "L’homme-chevreuil", le récit d’une rencontre entre un homme et le monde sylvestre.
