Desert Dancer Obit: Farley Mowat (1921-2014) (20) RE: Obit: Farley Mowat (1921-2014) 07 May 14

Along with "My Side of the Mountain" by Jean Craighead George (read in the summer between 4th & 5th grades), "Never Cry Wolf" (read in 5th grade, I think) was key in shaping my interest in biology and perspective on nature and humans.

I haven't read much more of Mowat's writing, in part because of my disappointment in finding his story to be largely fabrication. The product of his passion for "the truth" as more important than facts, I guess. What I've read has always been well-written, though.

Thanks for the links, above. Interesting to read more about him and how he was shaped in part by PTSD from his experience in Italy in WWII.
