About this title


Scott Young was one of Canada's best-loved writers (and the father of renowned singer/songwriter, Neil Young.) For more than half a century, his name has been synonymous with first rate writing in many fields. -- novels and mysteries for both adults and younger readers, short stories, best-selling biographies, TV documentaries, hundreds of newspaper columns on topics from family life to sports to politics and back again -- all impressing readers with his insights, clarity and self-deprecating wit. Now Scott Young's penetrating gaze and sometimes painfully clear insight turn upon the rents closes to him over the years -- providing us with a fascinating glimpse into his life. From his birth in Cypress River, Manitoba, April 14, 1918, he details his personal and professional life. He always wanted to be a writer and at age sixteen borrowed money from his employer and made a down payment on a Remington portable typewriter. He sold his first stor to Winnipeg Free Press for three dollars. Young writes candidly about his war experiences, as well as his three marriages, children and grandchildren. He reveals his special fondness for his farm near Omemee where he has spent much of his life. This very personal history -- written with Young's trademark humor and honest -- is sure to become a Canadian classic.
