This is an absolutely brilliantly written story about a young boy who was found in the end of the 18th century in the wood of West France. Firstly he was chased by village people those who had no idea how to cope with this wild child. Secondly, his life in the wood is described so detailed that as a reader one becomes also an observer. Furthermore, the trying of the young doctor to give this boy a kind of human life and feelings and also to make a rapprochement to the speaking and communication is written in a very sensitive way.
