Read full description of the books Lost in the Barrens:I read this as a youngster in Junior High School. It had been recommended to me by my older brother, strange as it was that I would read a book he had read.
It's a wonderful "Coming of Age" tale full of danger, adventure, and friendship, set in the wilds of North East Canada and Western Alaska.
For me, it was everything Call of the Wild by Jack London turned out to be, and better, since I was the same age as the characters in the book.
Farley Mowat has a wonderful sense of touch and there are messages in this book about getting along, racism and how to handle it, and how to be someone's friend. I haven't bumped into the same feelings this book inspired until last year when I read Allen Steele's Coyote.
I'd rank it with "The Last of the Mowhicans."
Great story for Young Adults and anyone who with a sense of adventure.
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.
