Loss Is The Price of Freedom A beautiful Wild Man is swept through many seasonal-themed wildernesses on a search for healing. An evil queen and a majestic deer call him from his true love: a woman whose body morphs with the seasons. Wild Man is an allegorical fable, employing evocative prose and picturesque seasonal imagery to create an emotionally realistic universe and give us lessons on life, love, pain, and joy. Wild Man longs for freedom; but various forms of women distract him from his desire. He finally forsakes them all to chase an unattainable beast, leading to the ultimate sacrifice.
