I may have disagreed with many of Mowat's political and environmental stances, but I read as much of his stuff as I could get my hands on.......
The man had a style that kept you reading...
And No Birds Sang
is the absolute best view of war ever written by a Canadian. The Regiment
runs a close second.
Never Cry Wolf
was simply wonderful.
I was fascinated by his attempt at "history" West Viking
From his books on recovery tugs working the Atlantic, to war, to environmentalism, to Sibir
no one else could weave a tale like Farley.

Seriously, try And No Birds Sang
(Farley Mowat), the very personal story of his experiences as an infantry officer in WWII
