Description

Farley Mowat's outrageous memoir begins with his unlikely conception in a canoe and follows a childhood full of adventure.

Piloted by a father with itchy feet and adventurous whims, the Mowats move frequently, finally leaving Ontario for Saskatoon. Small, bookish, and ill at ease in a hockey rink, Farley is most at home in the natural world. Wherever he finds himself, the world of the "Others" -- the wild birds, brotherly dogs, rapidly multiplying rats, and many other creature-companions -- is always close at hand, inspiring hilarity, curiosity, and ultimately a life's work.

Editorial Review

"Readers can join Farley Mowat in this classic memoir, enjoying his often hilarious memories of his eccentric father and long-suffering mother in a series of dilapidated houses and unseaworthy boats, as he developed his undying love for nature and wildlife."
