KIRKUS REVIEW

A series of remarkable photographs tempt the reader to dally awhile in the soft and lovely realm of the deer. A doe steals away to the quiet of a wooded patch to bear her fawn. Wobbly and bewildered, the newborn staggers beneath its own weight. But the doe encourages it to stand and follow her. Throughout the year, the young fawn learns the art of survival from her able teacher. And before long she will be ready to practise it unattended by her watchful mother. Miss Eberle has tempered her story with the same compassion and tenderness captured at close range by Lio Hess' magic camera. Definitely not limited to this age group.
