Overview

  • Classic works by one of North America's greatest storytellers brought back to print in a new paperback series
  • Inspiration for the major motion picture from Infinity Media and First Look International

Central to Farley Mowat's writing is his quest to understand the often-forgotten native people of the vast arctic wilderness. In this moving collection, he allows these people to describe in their own words the adventures they experience as they struggle to survive in an isolated, untamed land. Stories of survival and courage, of superstition and fate, of uncompromising loyalty to family and tribe are presented here, offering a vivid portrait of a people whose existence is often beyond the comprehension of modern man.

Mowat always has readers, but a forthcoming feature film based on The Snow Walker will boost interest. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
