Farley Mowat’s Sunshine Coast based publisher is remembering him as an author who had a major influence on Canadians and even government policy.
Mowat died Wednesday at the age of 92.
Harbour Publishing acquired the rights to Mowat’s work when it took over Douglas and McIntyre.
Harbour’s Howard White says he only met Mowat in person once, many years ago, and they did most of their recent work over the phone and through his agent.
That work included re-issuing some of Mowat’s best known books.
White says Mowat did what few authors can, influenced public and government opinion through books like 1952’s People of the Deer and a Whale for the Killing two decades later.
