Books about forests
There are many lovely books about forests in the Estonian literature. About 100 years ago Fr. R Kreutzwald wrote a book "The tender- hearted woodcutter". It tells a story about woodchopper . who went to the forest to cut wood. the trees started to beg him to spare them as they are not old enough. The woodcutter respecter their wish and the forest elf took him under his protection. Kreutzwald has also written the Estonian national epic called "Kalevipoeg". Here there are some drawings about the woodchopper made by our students.
