Susa  Bobke, Shirley Michaela  Seul - Deer Crossing


How a motherless fawn changed a hunter's view of the world

Susa Bobke is a keen hunter and falconer. Her territory is the Allgäu, one of the most beautiful mountainous areas in Germany.

When the meadows are being mown one spring she finds a fawn, about a week old and simply beautiful. When it is still all on its own the next morning the hunter decides to take care of the baby animal. A decision with far-reaching consequences: life together with Snow White, the animal's later reintroduction to the wild and the birth of more fawns in the author's presence allow the deer Mum to see the world from a very new angle. The question that increasingly bothers her is how humans and animals can survive together in harmony with nature and according to its laws.

"A really moving, special and educational story […] an absolute 'must-read' for every true nature lover"
