One day, villagers from Lacaune, in the mountains of southern France, returned from the woods with a startling story. Theyâd glimpsed a naked boy digging in the leaves. A year laterâin 1798âthe strange, scarred boy appeared again, and this time woodsmen captured him and marched him down the mountain to the village square, where everyone crowded around to take in the spectacle. And so began the curious public life of the boy known as the Savage of Aveyron, whose journey took him all the way to Paris.
