A new and captivating piece of the puzzle of Farley Mowat's life: the years from his return from the north in the late 1940s to his discovery of Newfoundland and his love affair with the sea in the 1950s. This was a time in which he wrote his first books and weathered his first storms of controversy. It was a time of self-discovery, a formative period for him as a writer and activist. Mowat offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a writer's career and the events that shaped his work.

About one-third of this memoir is Mowat's correspondence with his American publisher over the "style" of his first book "The People of the Deer". During this period Mowat labours to build a cabin for his wife and himself on an acreage near Bolton, Ontario, northwest of Toronto.
