The Hoover's take us inside this harsh but beautiful world where human, animal and nature strive to exist through all four seasons. Her commentary on the relationships with the wild creatures in her book is filled with knowledge and compassion. It is a must read for anyone that enjoys wildlife and nature.

Enchanting and Beautiful
In this beautifuly crafted narrative, Helen Hoover takes us back to a bitterly cold winter night in the Northern Minnesota woods. Responding to a soft tapping at their door Helen and her husband Adrian find a starving deer who has come to them for help. This incredible encounter is the beginning of an enchanted adventure. I originaly read this book years ago, and have re-read it several times. It is impossible to read this book and not feel good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I love Helen Hoover's writings. Gift of the Deer is excellent. I have read it many times. I found it in the Readers Digest in the 60's. So happy to have found it in print in its original version.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
