Life and Times Farley Mowat

Life and Times Farley Mowat

With a career that began at age 14 when he wrote a column on birds for a local newspaper, Farley Mowat has gone on to sell 18 million books in 24 languages. We visit Mowat, the author, traveller and activist who has made a permanent home for himself on best-seller lists writing novels that spring from a natural-born love of animals and the environment, and a respect for native cultures. Family and literary figures discuss Mowat and address the ongoing criticism that some of his books are more fiction than "subjective nonfiction".
