Synopsis: The follow-up to And No Birds Sang, Farley Mowat?s memoir My Father?s Son charts the course of a family relationship in the midst of extreme trial. Taking place during Mowat?s years in the Italian Campaign, the memoir is mostly told through original letters between Mowat and his mother, Helen, and his father, Angus, a World War I veteran and librarian. Written between 1943 and 1945, the correspondence depicts the coming of age of a young writer in the midst of war, and presents a sensitive and thoughtful reflection of the chaos and occasional comedy of wartime.
First published in 1992, Douglas & McIntyre is pleased to add My Father?s Son to the Farley Mowat Library series, which includes the other recently re-released titles Sea of Slaughter, People of the Deer, A Whale for the Killing, And No Birds Sang, Born Naked and The Snow Walker.
Product Description: Canada's best-known storyteller, the famed author of And No Birds Sang, Never Cry Wolf, and A Whale for the Killing has at long last given readers a book about the most powerful influence on his life: his father. Here is Mowat's memoirs of his service in World War II, his letters to and from his father, and his bizarre tale of steering German war materials back home to Canada. Photographs.
