SNOW WALKER JOHNNY BOURASSA
To Orwell Today,
re: JOHNNY BOURASSA FLIES FARLEY MOWAT
I really enjoyed watching The Snow Walker movie and wish that I could get an original copy of either the essay from Walk Well My Brother or the published book of the Snow Walker. Mr. Farley Mowat is an excellent writer and author and I am now discovering his works. Where could I find some of his original works, even though I am in the U.S.?
Thank you for every thing,
You could probably find Farley Mowat's books in a second-hand bookstore, which is where I found my copy of THE SNOW WALKER:
I saw the movie THE SNOW WALKER last summer when it played in the local cinema. It was about a bush pilot who is on his way to Yellowknife (same as my uncle Johnny Bourassa) when his engine cuts out. He crash-lands on a frozen lake and then attempts to walk out of the tundra. It's based on the short story WALK WELL, MY BROTHER by Farley Mowat.
The story WALK WELL, MY BROTHER is the 9th of eleven short stories in the book (pages 132-148).
My belief that Farley Mowat had Johnny Bourassa in mind when he wrote the short story WALK WELL, MY BROTHER (which was made into the 2003 movie THE SNOW WALKER) is reinforced upon re-reading his recollections of Johnny as described in PEOPLE OF THE DEER.
All the best,
To Orwell Today,
Thank you for my inclusion in the website.
