Farley Mowat has passed

Dead at 92.

Heaven or hell?

He did not live a quiet life. I aspired to meet him, but did not.

Sad to hear. Just started reading People of the Deer. Read most of his others. Great guy.

Purgatory; he likes to keep his options open.

"The Boat Who Wouldn't Float" is one of the all-time greats.

RIP, Farley, and thanks.

A great Canadian, author, environmentalist, and combat veteran of the Second World War.

Farley was something of a foul mouthed, hot headed cad.

The life force was strong in him.

Not what many " proper" folks would consider a good candidate.

I hope to meet him where ever he ends up, that's where my friends I'll be.
