Farley Mowat's outrageous memoir begins with his unlikely conception in a canoe and follows a childhood full of adventure.

Piloted by a father with itchy feet and adventurous whims, the Mowats move frequently, finally leaving Ontario for Saskatoon. Small, bookish, and ill at ease in a hockey rink, Farley is most at home in the natural world. Wherever he finds himself, the world of the "Others" -- the wild birds, brotherly dogs, rapidly multiplying rats, and many other creature-companions -- is always close at hand, inspiring hilarity, curiosity, and ultimately a life's work.

Started Nov 10 2012....brought this home for my hubby, but too much good football on, so I decided to read it before it has to go back. I really like Farley's writing style. His childhood has some great similarities to my own......fond cottage memories!.....Nov 11 2012....I'm over 1/2 way through....even after attending four Remembrance day ceremonies (we have three legions in our town and they also hold one at the local high school!) and spending a couple of hours (each) at two of the legions just embracing the day. Now I need to read his book about his dog!.....Monday Nov 12 2012.....finished 'er up.....great read!
