Farley Mowat, 87, to publish final book

McClelland & Stewart has announced that it will publish Farley Mowat's 40th book this fall.

Mowat says the memoir, titled Otherwise, is to focus on the beginnings of his environmental activism and will be his final book.

Now 87, Mowat has written about his childhood, his military service in the Second World War and his studies of wildlife.


Mowat is one of Canada's best-known authors and has sold 14 million copies of his books in 25 countries.

He is promising a "surprising revelation" at the end of his last book.

Mowat will launch the book at the International Festival of Authors in Toronto in October and that is planned as his last public literary appearance.
