The article presents the author's view on the book "Dersu the Trapper," by Vladimir Arseniev in Siberia, Russia. He offers information about the encounter of Arseniev with Dersu Uzala, an ageing member of a dwindling indigenous furtrapping tribe known as the Golds. He depicts the technique of Arseniev as lullingly poetic and has purpose, for the taiga is so full of such soul-drenching visions of nature that this is the only way to describe it.
