Farley Mowat was definitely one of this world’s greatest humanitarians, storytellers and philosophers…and he will be greatly missed. Mr. Mowat passed away yesterday but will live on as he espoused in his love of nature, the books he wrote and thoughts of those who read them. A true adventurer and lover of life. Below are two interviews…and if you get the chance he wrote scores great of books like “The Snow Walker” and “Never Cry Wolf”! (“The Farfarers” is one such book written about the first European visitors to North America who lived while hunting in the stone boat houses…had to get some Architecture in there ya know!)
