Born Naked: The Early Adventures of the Author of Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat

Farley Mowat's youth was charmed and hilarious, and unbelievably free in its access to unspoiled nature through bird-banding expeditions and overnight outings in the dead of winter. The author writes of sleeping in haystacks for survival, and other adventures, with equal shares of Booth Tarkington and Jack London. He also brings back Mutt, the famous hero-dog of his classic THE DOG WHO WOULDN'T BE, and his pet owl Wol, hero of OWLS IN THE FAMILY. The tale of an outrageous and clever boy, BORN NAKED takes its place as the foundation of the Farley Mowat canon.

Age has not scarred the memory of this famous writer. I read the books to my children and just discovered this autobiography of his young age. My older teens thought this a great addition to their Mowat collection.

This book is set in Ontario and Saskatchuan Canada. To people who live there it will bring a smile to your face and memories flooding back I'm sure. I have always wanted to go to Canada and this piece provided a doorway to me. Mowat is HILARIOUS as he tells his life's story. And the way he talks about the animals and nature in his book will touch your heart.
