Read full description of the books:
Being the first book in it's series, Lost in the Barrens sets such a high standard it seems like the other books in this set are doomed to fall short. Farley Mowat has done well in this book in capturing the hardships of survival in the arctic plains of Canada.
In this page turner, you will read about the trials that a pair of boys must go through after their canoe is wrecked on a river far north in Canada's tundra. Jamie MaCnair, a Canadian born in Toronto, lives with his uncle Angus on the shores of a lake far north of Manitoba after his parents tragic car accident. Awasin, Jamie's best friend, is a Cree boy who lives near the Macnairs in a village, where he is the Chiefs son. While their fathers are away, they are asked for help from another Indian band farther north then even them, who suffer from starvation after not being able to hunt enough deer to support themselves. The two teens head off to help with a hunt, but find themselves with their canoe wrecked and hundreds of miles from help, with winter fast-approaching.
Jamie and Awasin must feed, cloth, shelter and protect themselves during the brutal arctic winter with not much more than a rifle, axe, rope and frying pan. Farley Mowat has written a masterpiece in this exciting book. Anyone who likes to read about adventure, danger and risk will find this one hard to put down!

Read information about the authorFarley McGill Mowat was a conservationist and one of Canada's most widely-read authors.
Many of his most popular works have been memoirs of his childhood, his war service, and his work as a naturalist. His works have been translated into 52 languages and he has sold more than 14 million books.
Mowat studied biology at the University of Toronto. During a field trip to the Arctic, Mowat became outraged at the plight of the Ihalmiut, a Caribou Inuit band, which he attributed to misunderstanding by whites. His outrage led him to publish his first novel, People of the Deer (1952). This book made Mowat into a literary celebrity and was largely responsible for the shift in the Canadian government's Inuit policy: the government began shipping meat and dry goods to a people they previously denied existed.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship RV Farley Mowat was named in honour of him, and he frequently visited it to assist its mission.
