died Tuesday at his home in Port Hope, Ontario, six days short of his 93rd birthday.
Few Canadians reach adulthood without reading at least one of Mowat's 40-odd memoirs, adventure books, or novels. His most famous book is likely Never Cry Wolf
, but I can never forget his memoir of his experiences during World War II, And No Birds Sang
or his ethnography of the Ihalmiut people, People of the Deer
Lengthy eulogies from CBC
, the Toronto Star
, the Globe and Mail
and the NP
tell parts of his story. Interviews from 2010
show that his wit was untarnished. A great Canadian.
