Read full description of the books Two Against the North:No single book could represent such a singular, widely curious figure as Farley Mowat, but Lost in the Barrens, the classic adventure tale that has introduced his work to generations of Canadians, is an excellent place to start. Set in the icy North that has been Mowat's continuing source of inspiration, Lost in the Barrens is a thrilling example of the gift for storytelling that makes almost any story Mowat wants to tell worth a listen.
Read information about the authorFarley McGill Mowat was a conservationist and one of Canada's most widely-read authors.
Many of his most popular works have been memoirs of his childhood, his war service, and his work as a naturalist. His works have been translated into 52 languages and he has sold more than 14 million books.
Mowat studied biology at the University of Toronto. During a field trip to the Arctic, Mowat became outraged at the plight of the Ihalmiut, a Caribou Inuit band, which he attributed to misunderstanding by whites. His outrage led him to publish his first novel, People of the Deer (1952). This book made Mowat into a literary celebrity and was largely responsible for the shift in the Canadian government's Inuit policy: the government began shipping meat and dry goods to a people they previously denied existed.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship RV Farley Mowat was named in honour of him, and he frequently visited it to assist its mission.
