Born Naked: The Early Adventures of the Author of Never Cry Wolf Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Farley Mowat's youth was charmed and hilarious, and unbelievably free in its access to unspoiled nature through bird-banding expeditions and overnight outings in the dead of winter. The author writes of sleeping in haystacks for survival, and other adventures, with equal shares of Booth Tarkington and Jack London. He also brings back Mutt, the famous hero-dog of his classic THE DOG WHO WOULDN'T BE, and his pet owl Wol, hero of OWLS IN THE FAMILY. The tale of an outrageous and clever boy, BORN NAKED takes its place as the foundation of the Farley Mowat canon.

Synopsis:

Before the events of his classic Never Cry Wolf, the young Farley Mowat honed his naturalist skills through all manner of boyhood adventures. Born Naked tells of the same period of Mowat's idyllic youth as the brilliant Dog Who Wouldn't Be (in print over 35 years) but reveals the boy behind the dog. Photos.
