This classic story for children of all ages has enchanted generations since it first appeared in 1897 But this is no mere fairytale. It is a closely observed life-story of an Exmoor stag and the landscape and other wildlife around him. Characters abound, from foxes and weasels to salmon and greyhens, but the central thread is the tale of a deer from a little calf to a fine, mature stag - a Lord of the herd. Its author, John Fortescue, found fame as the Royal Librarian and historian of the British Army. But he was an Exmoor man through and through and his intimate knowledge and love of the Moor shine through every page. For anyone who loves Exmoor - or wishes to understand the true nature of the place -The Story of a Red-Deer is the one book they must read above all others.
