Read full description of the books The Siberians:Farley Mowat's incredible 29,000-mile journey to the top of the world.
Farley Mowat's most dramatic expedition takes him deep into the little-known regions of Soviet Siberia - from the weather-battered log houses of old Russia, to primitive deerskin tents pitched on the edge of the polar sea, and to Yakutsk, one of the coldest places on Earth, where on still winter days the warmth of human breath causes fogs to condense over the towns. The Siberians - reindeer herders, poets, dissidents, Arctic engineers, and vigorous women - welcome Mowat with mare's milk and vodka, black bread and caviar, outrageous good humor, and a fierce love for their isolated - yet booming - territory.
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.
