The Regiment

By Mowat, Farley

Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, Limited, 1955 Grey cloth on boards. No writing except notes on last free endpaper. Farley Mowat grew up with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, named for adjoining counties in Ontario.

Young - KM2 -Mobilize."- P. 2. If this book appeals you will want to read And No Birds Sang (1980) as well as My Father's Son (1992), which explore Farley's military career with special emphasis upon his relationship with his father by correspondence. One wonders how Farley managed to complete more than 50 books. 312 pp.. First Edition Stated. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall;.
