Reasonable Words: Farley Mowat

161px-Farley_MowatWriter and environmentalist Farley Mowat (probably best known in the U.S. for Never Cry Wolf, which was made into a fine film a generation ago) died May 6, age 92. There are lots of things to remember and honor about him, but this line in particular has stayed with me.

“I have tried to fulfill the function that is in me, that of storyteller.”
