Farley Mowat

Farley Mowat, author of the Canadian classics Owls in the Family and Never Cry Wolf, is actually quite the figure of controversy in Canada. His detractors (including The Toronto Star) have suggested that he plays fast and loose with the truth, while his defenders insist that a little truth-stretching here and there doesn’t detract from the basic validity of his message. Regardless of how tall you feel his tales might be, Mowat’s two most famous books are moving, entertaining stories about the glories--and quirks--of nature.

None, unless you work for The Toronto Star.
