Get out your man card and start punching: - go on an expedition to the wildest Siberian forest: Check! Vladimir Arsenyev was a military officer, an explorer of the Far East, a scientist, a traveler, and a writer who organized several prospecting expeditions in the Ussurian taiga between and There are three main attractions in the story for me: 1 - the descriptions of the pristine forests of Far East Asia, with their incredible wealth of plant and animal life, the rugged mountains, the marshes, the rivers full of salmon, the beaches inhabited only by seals and sea lions, the majestic tigers waiting to pounce almost on a daily basis.

The few humans encountered on the trip are the original tribesmen Udehei, Nanai, etc , the first Russian settlers brought there by the Great Transsiberian Railway, some Chinese and Korean trappers. Arsenyev style is mostly dry, a detached recounting of facts, but he is effective because this lends the authenticity of the eyewitness to the text.

His emotions will become more transparent towards the end, as his friendship with Dersu gains steam. Arsenyev and his team are on their own and many times their survival is due only to the skills of one man: Dersu Uzala. Which brings me to 3 - the real star of the novel, Dersu Uzala, a simple man with basic needs and ancient wisdom inherited from his native ancestors. Old, small of stature and poorly dressed, he is more at home in the wilderness that any of his Russian employers.

He is an exceptional marksman with a rifle but his real talent is to read the language of trees and the tracks of the animals, the patterns of the clouds and the winds. He is a survivor who chuckles at Arsenyev when he fails to spot a broken branch on the trail: "Hm!

Like a baby. See nothing, savvy nothing. Live in town. Want to eat - go buy. Live alone in mountains - soon die. For me, the most important aspect of Dersu personality is his animist spirituality - his belief that every living thing has a soul and is talking gently to him, his view that nature is a garden to be nurtured or at least respected, and not an adversary to be conquered.

He reminds me of Winnetou and Uncas Leatherstocking, with the important difference that Dersu is not an imaginary character. Dersu pulled it out hastily and flung it to the ground.

They can eat it. There are all kinds of people in the taiga. Consider also that the movie won an Oscar for the best foreign language film. I have waited to read the book before renting the movie, but I plan to remedy this and get it into my player soon.
