With No Man's River, Farley Mowat has penned his best Arctic tale in years. This book chronicles his life among Metis trappers and native people as they struggle to eke out a living in a brutal environment. In the spring of 1947, putting the death and devastation of WWII behind him, Mowat joined a scientific expedition. In the remote reaches of Manitoba, he witnessed an Eskimo population ravaged by starvation and disease brought about by the white man. In his efforts to provide the natives with some of the assistance that the government failed to provide, Mowat set out on an arduous journey that collided with one of nature's most arresting phenomena-the migration of the Arctic's caribou herds. Mowat was based at Windy Post with a Metis trapper and two Ihalmiut children. A young girl, known as Rita, is painted with special vividness-checking the trap lines with the men, riding atop a sled, smoking a tiny pipe. Farley returns to the North two decades later and discovers the tragic fate that befell her. Combining his exquisite portraits with awe-inspiring passages on the power of nature, No Man's River is another riveting memoir from one of North America's most beloved writers..With No Man's River, master storyteller Farley Mowat has penned his best Arctic tale in years.

In the remote reaches of Manitoba, he witnessed an Eskimo population ravaged by starvation and disease brought in by the white man. In his efforts to provide the natives with the assistance that the government failed to provide, Mowat set out on an arduous journey that collided with one of nature's most arresting phenomena - the millenniaold migration of the Arctic's caribou herds. Mowat was based at Windy Post with Charles Schweder, a Metis trapper, and two Ihalmiut children.
