In Home of the Wild, the quiet dawn of the spring forest greets us as a boy finds an orphan fawn, hungry and alone. He carefully carries her home, caring for her while she grows strong. The boy and the fawn become inseparable. Together they spend long summer days running through the valley, leaping over the heather, and lying in the dappled sunlight.
But the young deer is a wild thing and too soon she is ready to discover a home of her own. The boy misses his friend and worries for her when a big storm threatens. Can the boy and the fawn find each other again? Are some bonds stronger than goodbye?
Lyrical and atmospheric, this beautiful picture book is an uplifting story of belonging, the enduring connection between humans and nature, and a tender lesson in learning when to let go of those you love.
