DECEMBER READ - Never Cry Wolf en The Green Dragon (diciembre 2013)

Reseñas

As an adolescent, Mowat was one of my favourite authors as a model of Canada, northern life, personal independence and appreciation of nature. This book fits well in that tradition.

I found Mowat an exciting read as a child, and the first writer to inspire an interest in being Canadian and environmentally conscious.
