What a beautifully written masterpiece I was completely surprised and overwhelmed by the gorgeous scenes of forest and woodland animals that so nimbly sprung to life from within these pages Autumn Winter Spring each passing of the seasons with their uniue enchantment and starkness were so vividly expressed The animal's joys and heartaches told with such feeling it was hard to stay removed from the story It is a noteworthy classic and one I heartily recommendThe author a nature lover and a sportsman kept the story well balanced While the animals are personified they do not deviate from their natural tendencies; much to my chagrin at times I had wanted Bambi and Faline to stay together always but as male deer do he wandered off now and again after the mating season This when you're not carried away in the climax of a story point is the better way to go as the book offers it's readers a educational look at nature and not merely a storyIf you're a hunter hiker animal lover appreciator of exemplary writing or just looking for your next family read aloud this book is for you The animated cartoon deviates enough to provide some nice surprises tooAges 8Cleanliness Like the Disney cartoon there are some tense moments when the hunters are out and animals are being shot A few scenes are described using a sentence or two about blood flowing from the neck etc Like my reviews I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too These reports give a complete break down of everything in the book so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't I also have Clean Guides downloadable PDFs which enable you to clean up your book before reading it Visit my website

The Prince of the Lebensgeschichte aus PDF #206 Forest Bambi's life in the woods begins happily There are forest animals to play with Friend Hare the chattery suirrel the noisy screech owl and Bambi's twin cousins frail Gobo and beautiful Faline But winter c. How come I have never read this little treasure before now Bambi A life in the Woods is a true classic of children’s literature with passages of great joy and also of deep regret and sorrow; exhilarating but also occasionally savage and heavy with exuisite prose descriptions of the woods and countryside The writer was evidently a keen naturalist with an eye for details of flora and fauna throughout the seasons and also skilled at his craft His name was Felix SaltenFelix Salten was an Austrian writer born in Hungary in 1869 He was a prolific writer of short stories and novels often about animals travel books and essay collections He was also an Art and literary critic and wrote articles for nearly all the major newspapers of Vienna But what he is most famous for is his outstanding and memorable novel for children Bambi a Life in the Woods which was first published in German as “Bambi Eine Lebensgeschichte aus dem Walde” in 1923 and translated into English in 1928In 1942 Walt Disney made the classic animated film “Bambi” But if your only experience of Bambi so far has been courtesy of Walt Disney you will find reading this a much broader and deeper experience Bambi’s friend the rabbit “Thumper” was an invention as was “Flower” the skunk Cute though they are Felix Salten’s countryside is solidly European with not a skunk or woodchuck in sight “In early summer the trees stood still under the blue sky held their limbs outstretched and received the direct rays of the sun On the shrubs and bushes in the undergrowth the flowers unfolded their red white and yellow stars On some the seed pods had begin to appear again They perched innumerable on the fine tips of the branches tender and firm and resolute and seemed like small clenched fists Out of the earth came whole troops of flowers like motley stars so that the soil of the twilit forest floor shone with a silent ardent colourful gladness Everything smelled of fresh leaves of blossom of moist clods and green woods When morning broke or when the sun went down the whole woods resounded with a thousand voices and from morning till night the bees hummed the wasps droned and filled the fragrant stillness with their murmur”Opening the book at random it would be easy to find such a passage This extract is from the first chapter and conveys the experience of a very young fawn only days old It perfectly conveys the sensations and impressions of early summer Where I am at the moment I can see clumps of yellow primroses daisies and a few grape hyacinths; over my shoulder is an abundance of cowslip flowers their frilly yellow bells dancing among the blades of grass and along the path another mass of bluebells If I walk a while there will be great banks of primroses and celandines The freshly budding trees oaks birches and sycas are beginning to lighten the world with their light green reflections some clusters of wood anemones nestling in the grass between bluebells dotted around and masses of white wild garlic flowers in a field nearby This is my experience right now The sensations I feel as I look at all the wild bounty surrounding me which I have feebly attempted to describe is akin to the feelings triggered by reading this book The enchantment of Bambi’s world can be conjured up regardless of where we read it There is no need to be far from the cityThe story of Bambi is set in a forest whose location is never specified It was inspired by woods which Felix Salten discovered when he was on holiday in the Alps Bambi’s woodland home feels remote enough from humans to be a haven for wild creatures—but only for some of the time There is a darkness in the book which is at the heart of the story and its important message They animals are never completely free of the fear of “He” a strange and incomprehensible being who invades the peace of the forest “He” has the smell of death; an unearthly predator who possesses a “third arm” which destroys and kills seemingly irregardless and at a remote distanceMany children’s books about animals portray the natural world as benign and kindly but the forest here is no such place Death even violent death is accepted as part of the natural scheme of things There is great friendship in the forest but there are many natural enemies too Perhaps Felix Salten’s negative view of in particular human’s relationship with the natural world is not so surprising Bambi was written in 1923 in the aftermath of the First World War and many Europeans at that time having witnessed the inhumanity of war turned towards the idea of a natural world as a haven What distinguishes this book is that although we see and yearn for Bambi’s world we also see that nature is indeed red in tooth and claw and never so than when “He” enters the sceneFelix Salten’s experiences after writing Bambi must only have confirmed his views of man’s inhumanity He was Jewish and life in Austria became increasingly perilous for a prominent Jew during the 1930s In 1936 Adolf Hitler had Felix Salten’s books banned Two years later after Germany’s annexation of Austria Felix Salten and his wife fled to Zurich Switzerland and lived there for the rest of their livesEssentially Bambi A life in the Woods is a coming of age story in which we also learn much about the different wild creatures’ habits It is anthropomorphic but completely unsentimental The writer John Galsworthy who wrote the introduction says “Bambi is a delicious book Felix Salten is a poet I do not as a rule like the method which places human words in the mouths of dumb creatures and it is the triumph of this book that behind the conversation one feels the real sensations of the creatures who speak Clear and illuminating and in places very moving it is a little masterpiece”As well as this interesting short introduction my copy has line drawings plus a few lovely delicate water colour plates by Sylvia GreenBambi A life in the Woods begins when Bambi is born in a thicket in the woods He is an awkward and innocent young fawn and his mother has to teach him what it is to be a deer both the joys and the fears Anyone who has ever watched days old lambs gambolling in the fields will recognise this “Now he saw the whole heaven stretching far and wide and he rejoiced without knowing why In the forest he had only seen a stray sunbeam now and then or the tender dappled light that played through the branches Suddenly he was standing in the blinding hot sunlight whose boundless power was beaming upon him He stood in the splendid warmth that made him shut his eyes but opened his heartBambi was as though bewitched He was completely beside himself with pleasure He was simply wild He leaped into the air three four five times He had to do it He felt a terrible desire to leap and jump He stretched his young limbs joyfully His breath came deeply and easily He drank in the air The sweet smell of the meadow made him so wildly happy that he had to leap into the air“Felix Salten seems to gets right inside how it feels to be a particular animal He describes how Bambi learns that deer do not kill other animals or fight over food Bambi learns too that for deer it is only safe to go to the meadow early in the morning and late in the evening and that signals such as the rustle of last year’s dead leaves will warn them of approaching danger Bambi learns to fear storms and to enjoy gentle rain He begins to encounter other animals in the meadow such as a grasshopper a butterfly and a hare But he is most excited when he meets his cousins with their mother Ena They are the lovely doe Faline and the foolish delicate young buck Gobo And he is a little in awe when two impressive stags with spreading antlers on their heads come crashing out of the forest Bambi’s mother tells him uietly that one of these proud and grand stags is his fatherAs he grows older Bambi learns about the sounds and smells of the forest He is confused that sometimes his mother goes off by herself and he goes calling in search of her But as he stands at the edge of a clearing “Bambi suddenly felt as if he were rooted to the ground and could not moveview spoilerOn the edge of the clearing by a tall hazel bush a creature was standing Bambi had never seen such a creature before At the same time the air brought him such a scent as he had never smelled in his life It was a strange smell heavy and acrid It excited him to the point of madness A kind of dread emanated from that face a cold terror That face had a tremendous power over him It was tremendously painful to look at that face and yet Bambi stood starting fixedly at it“ hide spoiler

Bambi Eine Lebensgeschichte aus dem WaldeOmes and Bambi learns that the Bambi Eine PDF or 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. What a jewel this little book is I did read it very many years ago but had forgotten just how wonderful and sensitive Felix Saltern's writing is I have watched the delightful and popular movie many times with my children and then with my grandchildren but I had forgotten how different the book is There is no Thumper or Flower for example Felix Saltern clearly feels deeply for nature and animals Although in the book the animals talk which is not to everyone's taste the story manages somehow to capture the inner feelings of the creaturesIt is in many ways such a gentle book full of wisdom yet there is violence too Even this is handled in a sensible way Bambi of course is the main character and through him the ifs and buts of growing up is explored He is nurtured by his Mother She protects him and teaches him about the great dangers that the deer must face His Father the great Prince of the forest takes over his care later in the book He experiences love joy and fun as a youngster but also has to face tragedy too He learns about the seasons and how to survive and grows through problems he initially doesn't understand and finds hard to overcome The greatest danger to the creatures is He in other words ManThis book can be read by all ages but older children will be able to read it for themselves It is also a good book to read to younger children too but there are other editions for the much younger children with lots of pictures which would be perhaps a better choice than this particular edition It is a book about wisdom love courage discernment whilst learning the lessons of life I found it to be a delightful experience to read this book again after so many years
