Bambi, a Life in the Woods (originally Bambi, ein Leben im Walde) is a book by Felix Salten, first printed in 1923. Bambi is the main character, a male roe deer beginning life as a fawn, then an adolescent spike, and finally a buck. Felix Salten was the pen name of Siegmund Salzmann, who was born in Budapest, Hungary, and grew up in Vienna, Austria. The book was translated from German into English by Whittaker Chambers, who needed to supplement his income while working at a Communist newspaper. Salten wrote a sequel, Bambi's Children. He also wrote a novel, Fifteen Rabbits, about rabbits in the woods, wherein Bambi makes a brief appearance. In Salten's novel Perri, the title character is a squirrel, and Bambi makes a brief appearance. For a later reprint of the book before the Disney Film was released, Salten commissioned Illustrations by French Artist Xavier Saint-Just.
