Story of a family of white-tailed deer describing their habits, behavior, personalities, and position in the forest's ecology

Like sunbeams streaming into a dark forest, Helen Hoover pours her heart into the pages of this book. For animal lovers, the distinct personalities of the deer come as no surprise. But for skeptics, the character traits of these delicate creatures may be a revelation. This book should be required reading for anyone seeking a hunting permit! It's impossible for any compassionate person not to be touched by Peter, Mama, Pretty and all the other deer. The emotionally perceptive sketches of Hoover's husband, Ade, are a valuable contribution to the story. Highly recommended book for naturalists, adventurers, and anyone who enjoys reading exquisite descriptions of our beautiful planet and its amazing creatures.

Well, what can I say about this book when I myself feed deer on our property twice a day??? That I loved it, it touched my heart to the very core and I could completely relate. I have been titled "Snow White" from my friends on Facebook due to the fact that Im such a HUGE animal lover. I feed deer, squirrels and every kind of bird. The author touches the heart strings of all who live their lives and feel the same about animals and nature as does her caring loving husband.
These generous people take a starving deer into their lives and provide it with food through a very rough winter and the results? They are rewarded back three fold with not only a beautiful loyal friendly buck who recovers 100% but also he in return touches their lives with his entire family who they are able to watch feed and love and learn so much from. My neighbor feeds our deer also so for her birthday I bought her a copy of this book. I also have ordered the authors other 3 books that go with this one.

After reading "Gift of the Deer" in an old Reader's Digest Condensed Book, I ordered the book for a friend's birthday. He is an outdoorsman and lives where there is lots of wildlife, so I know this book will bring him some reading pleasure.

What a special book this is! Written by a very special lady. Who had a very special husband. And they lived in a very special place. And they came across a very, very special deer which began their four year period of caring for wonderful Peter Whitetail and his progeny. And whatever wild creature came to them in need.

The reader will know what it is like to live in 30 degree below zero winters on the border lake between the U.S. and Canada and the struggle of wildlife to survive in such severe conditions. The reader will know what it is like when outlaw hunters gun tame deer and bear down for sport, leaving the humans who loved them in despair. And the reader will know what it is like for the animals to live in constant fear of and alert for predators and, as the deers age, to become more prone to know defeat.

But above all, one has the marvelous experience of getting to know Peter, Mama, a wonderful black bear whose life is cut very short by man, and a host of our forest friends.

Helen Hoover, as one reviewer points out, was a woman who was developed on the right and the left side of her brain. A superb intellect was accompanied by a magnanimous heart, by deep feminine feeling values, intuitive grace, and the courage at times to bear the almost unendurable. Her husband was a marvel too. Devoted and dedicated, and very kind. His illustrations are terrific and really capture the mystery and sternness and wonder of the setting and its inhabitants. That they picked up from city life and faced their almost impossible dream successfully is awesome.

As for Ms. Hoover's prose, she was a highly gifted writer but, more than that, at times she reaches the heighth (or perhaps I should say depth) of genuine and beautiful poetic prose. I believe, had she had a bent to do so, she could have been as well a highly accomplished poet.

This book is a great adventure story. It is Ms. Hoover's gift to humanity.

Once again, Helen Hoover has drawn me into her beautiful natural world. This offering, based upon her life in the wilderness with husband Adrian from the mid 1950's to the early 1970's, concentrates on a deer that the Hoovers saved from starvation one Christmas Eve, and befriends for nearly 4 years. Each year brings new deer to their cabin, although their first (and I imagine favorite), Peter Whitetail, is present throughout all four years.

Hoover's detailed observations of the deer reveal their individual characteristics, quirks, and mannerisms. From gentle, generous Peter to fiercely maternal and shy Mama, greedy and undisciplined Pig, beautiful Pretty, mousey Fuzzy, and a host of other deer, Hoover's descriptions delight and educate in a fascinating and wimsical way.

The end of this book is bittersweet and poignant. Hoover strikes a good balance between how nature takes it's course, and how man often interferes - with sad consequences.

I can truely say I loved this book and the observations Hoover offered. This is a keeper on my bookshelf.

This book is a keeper. I fell in love with the book and bless the Hoovers for being the compassionate and wise humans they were - many could learn from them. It deserves a cherished spot in a family library. Helen Hoover captured her beloved deer's characteristics and behavior. Wildlife are not pets, but they can be wonderful friends.
