The Snow Walker

The Snow Walker

Farley Mowat
$19.95


Mowat writes passionately of the bonds between a traditional people and the harsh world they inhabit, compiling a collection of stories that gives voice to a vanishing existence lived in the vast Arctic wilderness. The mythic Snow Walker traverses a place foreign to modern man -- a landscape where survival is simultaneously brutal and beautiful; a way of life embodied by fate, superstition and tribal connection; and a world where the ancestors wield an inexplicable magic.

A story from this collection titled "Walk Well, My Brother" was adapted in 2003 for the acclaimed Canadian film titled The Snow Walker. First published in 1975, Douglas & McIntyre is pleased to add The Snow Walker 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 and Born Naked.
