Farley Mowat

Farley Mowat (born May 12, 1921) is a Canadian novelist.

He grew up in Saskatoon and, loving animals, he kept an alligator and birds inside his house.


Many of the articles written about him are not positive. The Toronto Star has written that he bases his stories on fiction and avoids the truth. Once, when Mowat said that he has spent two summers and a winter studying wolves, the Toronto Star wrote that Mowat had only spent 90 hours studying the wolves.
