Farley Mowat dead at 92 years

One of Canada’s most popular authors and environmentalists, Farley Mowat has died at age 92, only a few days prior to his 93rd birthday. Farley was a fantastic storyteller, even though his books were non-fiction. He was passionate about the environment, as is evident in books such as Never Cry Wolf  and A Whale for the Killing. Check out this link to  a CBC television interview of his friend, Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party, and for other pertinent articles and videos. Rest eternal grant Farley, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon him.

    Never Cry Wolf is forever etched as part of my early reading days. Canada was a better place for having Farley Mowat in it. Your post is a lovely tribute.

    I too enjoyed Never Cry Wolf, I think it was the first book I read of Farley’s works.
