Read full description of the books Farley: The Life of Farley Mowat:"Farley Mowat is the author of thirty-eight books that have sold more than fourteen million copies in twenty-four languages over five decades. The Toronto Star recently dubbed him "Canada's answer to Gerald Durrell crossed with Mark Twain," and at the age of eighty-one he is still going strong with yet another new book due out this year. He is famous for throwing a spotlight on environmental and animal-rights concerns with suchs titles as Never Cry Wolf and A Whale for the Killing, for rankling the academy with such works of speculative history as Westviking and The Farfarers, and for attracting young fans with such heartwarming tales as Owls in the Family. He may be equally well known for his outrageous behavior - howling like a wolf at the dinner table and doing strange dances in a kilt while making oinking noises are among his exploits at formal events - and for headline-grabbing predicaments - he was barred for a time from entering the United States." James King's Farley is the first biography of this singularly influential man of letters. King gained full access to Mowat's papers including all embargoed letters and diaries. But while the book was researched with Mowat's cooperation, King was free to write whatever he concluded to be the truth. The result is an energetic work as forthright and colorful as its subject.
