Farley Mowat, Canadian Author, dies at 92

Iconic Canadian author passed away 6 May 2014 at 92. Mowat's connection to Newfoundland and its people, wildlife and resources was incredibly strong. Three of his books relate to his 8-year residency in Burgeo:

The Rock within the Sea (1968)

The Boat Who Wouldn't Float (1969, Leacock Medal 1970)
A Whale for the Killing (1972)
Did you also know that Harold Horwood had adapted a radio play called "A Serpent's Coil" from an earlier work by Mowat? Curious about this script? We have thousands of Scripts in the Newfoundland and Labrador Script Collection (COLL-144) all arranged alphabetically.
