DaLaoHu’s review appealed to me the most, because I think Kurosawa’s film Dersu Uzala has meant as much for himas for me. Some of the first two expeditions drag a bit because Arseniev has this need to mention every tree and bird that he sees, and what uzaa flowers looked like and what European flowers they resemble and what birds were in which tree and wether they were scared of him or didn’t seem to care.
There were also descriptions of the different groups of people contacted on this trip and Dersu knew the helpful way to interact with each group, according to their customs and behaviors. Check and double Check!!! Dersu could read the terrain and the weather like others could read hook book and had a respect for nature that is seldom seen in today’s world.
He then directs the party to cut a tree which can reach him before he drowns. Kzala emotions will become more transparent towards the end, as his friendship with Dersu gains steam. More by luck than judgement I read this ders I want to note the unobtrusive personality of the Russian officer, who tells us about the Gold he so admires and not about himself.
