Eastern Passage is 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, a time when he was discovering himself through experiences that, as he writes, "go to the heart of who and what I was" during his formative years as a writer and activist.

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.
