Description

Master Storyteller Farley Mowat delivers a gripping account of an adventure in the far north, shared with a M?tis trapper as the two men travel over a thousand miles by canoe.
In the spring of 1947, Mowat joined a scientific expedition to the north, seeking a saner world. His companion Charles Schweder---a M?tis trapper---provided Mowat with an entree into the ancient cultures of these native peoples, and he came to know their land and ways with an intimacy achieved by few strangers. His portraits are singularly moving and vivid, especially those of Schweder and his family, which includes two Inuit children.
No Man's River is a rare glimpse into a lost world.
"Considering the deep identification of Canada's most popular living non-fiction writer with the country's Arctic regions, Mowat's description of his inaugural odyssey to the area in 1947 will entrance his fans. The affinity for animals so appealing to Mowat's writing is fully fledged in this chronicle, which is recommendation enough, yet the buddy motif makes this especially enjoyable."
