This is an account of feral children - those brought up with no human contact, sometimes raised by wild animals, unable to speak or perform many of the functions we consider human. The cases discussed include those of Kamala and Amala, twin girls reputed to have been brought up by wolves in India in the 1920s; Genie, a girl kept in a single room in New York; a boy raised in a hen house in Northern Ireland; and a boy found among wild dogs in Moscow. The book examines their lives and the experiences of those who "rescued" them, looked after them, educated them or abused them.

Descrizione libro Hardcover. Condizione: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. Illustrated by Photographs and Drawings (illustratore). Second Printing. Wild or feral children have fascinated us down the centuries, and continue to do so today. In a haunting and hugely readable study, Michael Newton deftly investigates a number of infamous cases. He looks at Peter the Wild Boy, and at Victor of Aveyron who roamed wild in the forests of revolutionary France. He tells the story of a savage girl lost on the streets of Paris; of two children brought up by wolves in the jungles of India; and the girl who emerged from 13 years locked in a Los Angeles room. He describes too a boy brought up among monkeys in Uganda; and, in Moscow, the child found living with a pack of wild dogs. This volume examines the lives of these children and of the adults who 'rescued' them, looked after them, educated or abused them. 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall. Codice articolo 002132
