Travels with Farley - Claire Mowat

Your Price: $24.95
Part Number:65152

Claire Mowat writes of the ups and downs of being outsiders on their island but also of their love affair with the Magdalens, with its windswept dunes, endless beaches and the raw beauty. It was a rugged life by the sea for the Mowats and sometimes a life of isolation, but they attracted visitors from far and wide, including Pierre and Margaret Trudeau. Who arrived by helicopter from Charlottetown. The Mowats eventually gave the Trudeaus on of the puppies they raised. The Trudeaus, fittingly, named the dog, Farley. He lived at 24 Sussex with the prime minister’s family, enjoying the comforts of civilization his namesake often eschewed.

This is a warm and haunting tale of two writers whose lives were woven together by love, adversity and adventure. The book will appeal to both those already familiar with Farley Mowat, one of Canada’s iconic literary figures, and to those who have yet to meet his legendary and often controversial environmentalist.

With a foreword by Silver Donald Cameron and an afterword by Elizabeth May
