  Review of Gentle Souls of the Forest II

By Rosa Weisfeld


“Believe it or not, there are actually over 100 different deer in the book. Some are regulars that I see almost everyday.  Others are ones that I might only see for a few minutes while hiking, and never see them again. Gentle Souls of the Forest is all about the viewer building their own personal connection with whitetail deer.

Each deer has different physical characteristics that differentiate one from another.  They are living beings just trying to survive in the world" Mark A. Schneider

This Book is a true work of art, a labor of love, a visual love story and ultimately, a Voice for Deer. Chronicling the lives of whitetail deer through photographs, Mark Schneider reaches out on multiple levels. As an accomplished & extraordinary wildlife photographer, he offers a compilation of breath-taking photographs – allowing the viewer to imagine the life story that each whitetail deer in the Book is living. The viewer is drawn into their lives as an intimate but non-interfering observer. Invited into the deer's world and thinking about their individual life stories as they live their lives from month to month – creates strong connection. Mark’s stunning close-up photos make you feel like you’re right there with the deer -seeing and experiencing their world from their point of view.

What shines through is how the deer are each individuals- each with total interest and purpose in living their own lives and thriving from strong bonds formed with one other. The Book is about love, trust and respect – a Gift to give and receive, and a Gift from and to the wondrous & peaceful whitetail deer - Gentle Souls of the Forest 

Be sure to read the heartfelt Introduction in the beginning of Gentle Souls of the Forest II.

Mark dreams of starting a safe haven for deer - a Deer Sanctuary.

  1. Thrilled with this Book!

    Posted by Nancy Birder on 29th Aug 2017

    I just received my copy of Gentle souls of the Forest, and it is absolutely beautiful! I expected it to be good after receiving my copy of Snow Bunny. Mark did such a great job on that book! I love it! I am absolutely thrilled with the photography in Gentle Souls of the Forest! He captured these beautiful, gentle creatures in their own world in such a way that you can feel their personalities and emotions just by flipping through the pages. Please consider purchasing Gentle Souls of the Forest and Snow Bunny because they are both wonderful books! They would make great Christmas gifts, too! The photos on this site don't do them justice!

  2. The photos speak to your heart & convey the magic of whitetails

    Posted by Bill Lea Photography on 28th Jul 2016

    "I love whitetail deer and I have recently discovered somebody else who loves them too – that is Mark Schneider. His photographs of deer convey that thought more than any words ever could. So Mark published a book packed full of his fabulous images of this amazing animal – it is titled Gentle Souls of the Forest. There is no text or even captions but Mark’s photos say all you will ever need to know about whitetail deer. You have heard the old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” well this book lets the images do all of the talking and I promise you, they will speak to your heart.

    The photos convey the magic of whitetails and Mark’s love for them. If you want to learn more about the life and wonder of deer, then I encourage you to really come to know the whitetail deer through Mark’s incredible photographic art of these "Gentle Souls of the Forest."
