Amusing personal biography of Mr. Mowat. Rating is because of the death and destruction he wreaked on the native bird population. Egg collecting, shooting and trapping wild native birds is not okay today. Some readers may be appalled with the carnage.

Started Nov 10 2012....brought this home for my hubby, but too much good football on, so I decided to read it before it has to go back. I really like Farley's writing style. His childhood has some great similarities to my own......fond cottage memories!.....Nov 11 2012....I'm over 1/2 way through....even after attending four Remembrance day ceremonies (we have three legions in our town and they also hold one at the local high school!) and spending a couple of hours (each) at two of the legions just embracing the day. Now I need to read his book about his dog!.....Monday Nov 12 2012.....finished 'er up.....great read!
