Story by Barbara Walsh Illustrated By Helene Farrar
Stephen Taubner lives in an old Maine farmhouse surrounded by a forest filled with wildlife. One cold and snowy winter, Taubner spotted two fawns and their mother in the woods. The deer were too thin, and Taubner knew there was nothing left in the forest for them to eat. He fed the deer buckets of oats and befriended the large doe he called "Big Momma". Every winter she returned, and many other deer joined her. The Deer Man is a heartwarming true story about a man and the forest family he loved and nourished for 15 years.
