Courte biographie
Great-great-nephew of Ontario premier Sir Oliver Mowat, Farley McGill Mowat was born on May 12, 1921, in Belleville, Ontario, Canada and grew up in Richmond Hill, Ontario where he attended Richmond Hill High School. His father, Angus Mowat, who fought at the Battle of Vimy Ridge, became a librarian and enjoyed minor success as a novelist. Farley began writing informally while his family lived in Windsor from 1930–1933. He died, aged 92, at his home in Ontario.



DECEMBER READ - Never Cry Wolf à The Green Dragon (Décembre 2013)


A serious and sober book about northern Canadians of the NWT.
sfj2 | 1 autre critique | Jul 11, 2024 |
As an adolescent, Mowat was one of my favourite authors as a model of Canada, northern life, personal independence and appreciation of nature. This book fits well in that tradition.

I found Mowat an exciting read as a child, and the first writer to inspire an interest in being Canadian and environmentally conscious.
