The Story of a Red Deer by J.W. Fortescue
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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 shines through every page. Sometimes described as the finest book ever written about Exmoor, The Story of a Red Deer is reprinted for the first time in many years, with the deeply attractive colour and monochrome illustrations by G D Armour. 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.
