That was the name of the other Farley Mowatt book I read! (Didn't want to mention it until I remembered what it was called) In one way it is interesting. It's a slightly fictionalized account of Farley's finding/stealing two Great horned owlets as a boy and raising them, leading to some hilarious situations, and some sad ones as well. The ending is sad, as is inevitable when someone without proper knowledge tries to take a wild animal and make a pet out of it. Worth reading, Remember it happened in the sixties before there were laws forbidding this.
