Lost in the Barrens

Lost in the Barrens

Awasin and Jamie, brothers in courage, meet a challenge many mountain men could not endure.  When their canoe is destroyed by the fury of the rapids, they must face the wilderness with no food and no hope of rescue.  To survive, they build an igloo, battle a towering grizzly bear, track several wolves, slaughter caribou for food and clothing.  Two lost huskies they tame bring companionship--and maybe a way home from their dangerous adventure.

Farley: The Life of Farley Mowat

Farley: The Life of Farley Mowat

The Toronto Star recently called Farley Mowat, the author of thirty-eight books that have sold more than fourteen million copies in twenty-four languages over five decades “Canada’s answer to Gerald Durrell crossed with Mark Twain” and “a meaty subject for the biographer.” And at age 82, he is still going strong with yet another new book, High Latitudes (Steerforth, March 2002). He is famous for throwing a spotlight on environmental and animal-rights concerns with such 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. Margaret Atwood calls Mowat’s books “the spark that struck the tinder that ignited the fire from which many subsequent generations of writers and activists have lit their torches,...

Travels with Farley: A Memoir

Travels with Farley: A Memoir

Claire Mowat and her husband, Farley, spent the first five years of their marriage living in an isolated Newfoundland outport. It was out of that experience that Claire Mowat was inspired to write her acclaimed memoir The Outport People. As Farleys writing career took off, they decided to return to Ontario, to be closer to the publishing world. Farley and Claire settled down to raise a family in the picturesque town of Port Hope, where Farleys mother was living. After the tragic stillborn death of their first and only child, Farley persuaded Claire to leave Port Hope and go with him to the Magdalen Islands to make a film with the CBC on lobster fishing. They immediately fell in love with the windswept islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Soon they had bought a house there, on the edge of one of the only English-speaking communities in the archipelago. Their Magdalen Island home became an exotic destination for friends and luminaries of the periodPierre and Margaret Trudeau arrived by helicopter one afternoon, although most visitors took the ferry from Prince Edward Island.With a nod to John Steinbecks Travels with Charley, Claire Mowat has crafted a second memoir as charming and insightful as the first, providing an intimate portrait of a marriage and a window on Farley Mowats wr...
