About this title


A personal account of Mowat's coming of age during World War II, when, as an inexperienced, underweight, and underage youth he joined the Canadian forces, chronicles his conversion from eager, patriotic youth into a battleweary warrior

From the Back Cover:

On September 2, 1939, Farley Mowat was painting the porch of his family's home when his ebullient father drove into the driveway and shouted, "Farley, my lad, there's big bloody news! The war is on!" Eighteen-year-old Farley responded with glee, but four years later, pinned down in the wintry mud of Italy, he saw a soldier "humping jerily away from his own leg, which had been severed at the thigh. In the instant I saw him, he gave one final bubbling shriek, collapsed and mercifully was still." And No Birds Sang is Mowat's gripping account of how a young man excited by the prospect of battle, is transformed into a war-weary veteran.
