I’ve got a soft spot for Mowat. He’s the Don Cherry of environmentalism. He’s the cranky opinionated guy that I too often find myself agreeing with!
In High Latitudes, Mowat recounts his 1966 trip through the Canadian arctic. This book is more than a Mowat tale—there are extended sections where Mowat inserts verbatim interviews with people he met in the north.
The book rambles and seems a little too long at times. The only narrative thread holding the work together is the map of the trip. Still, there’s something compelling about Mowat’s passion for the arctic.
