Gift Of The Deer

Majesty: Visions From The Heart Of Elk Country
by: Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

Brilliant color photography celebrates the majesty of elk in all seasons and in all habitats. Majesty. Too grand a word? Hardly. The challenge rises in trying to describe a great wild ruggedness with a language born on a small island of green hills. Or, on a deeper level, trying to reduce the imperfect harmony of a roaring flute-an 800-pound, urine soaked, mud-slathered, wild-eyed flute-to a few flat syllables. Plenty of folks have tried. And a few, in sublime moments, have crossed over, the pages of their books suddenly smelling like pine duff and elk musk. Those sublime moments are gathered together here-the words of dozens of people who have loved elk and elk country over the past century. And these passages are coupled with a language of greater clarity-photographs that need no words, images that ring with something very much like the sound of a faint bugle drifting down out of the fog. Listen well as you turn these pages. There is majesty here. 120 pgs.

He describes the species of modern deer and their evolutionary relationships, and considers aspects of their physiology, ecology, and behavior, drawing particular attention to the ecology of habitat use, diet and digestive physiology, and social organization and behavior. He covers the life histories of the different species, population dynamics, and the interactions of deer with other animals. Devoting a whole chapter to an essay on antlers, he ends with an enlightening and entertaining analysis of the relations between deer and humans. Color & B/W photos, line drawings & figures. 224 pgs.

by: Hubbrad, Cynthia

Relates the story of the author’s nearly twenty-year journey hand-raising orphan fawns in her barn in the hills of West Virginia, and the unique relationships and bonds that developed with these gentlest of creatures. Who could imagine lying down in a barn stall with a week-old, five-pound fawn curled up alongside; or being invited to play by a fawn, and by that same fawn after release and when grown into a 100-pound buck; or sedating that 100-pound buck, playing Operating Room Nurse while the Veterinarian neutered him, and then Recovery Room Nurse to monitor him as he came out of the anesthetic; or having a fawn grow up and bring her own fawns around to introduce them; or patrolling the woods on horseback during hunting season to protect released fawns? The author couldn’t have imagined any of this, but was blessed to know such treasured experiences. The readers will get to experience all of these as well, and more, as they journey along on the adventures, through the chronicles of each fawn’s history and photographs taken during each hand-raising and after release. 250 pgs.
