        Wayland Drew 1932 1998 was a writer born in Oshawa, Ontario He attended Victoria College at the University of Toronto, where he earned a BA in English Language and Literature 1957 Shortly after graduation he married Gwendolyn Parrott and together they raised four children From 1961 1994 he was a high school teacher in Port Perry, Bracebridge, and Muskoka Lakes He also worked for the Ontario Ministry of Education Drew began to write seriously in high school and published a number of short stories to magazines such as The Tamarack Review and non fiction pieces throughout his career, while also selling radio and film scripts His first novel and sometimes stated to be his best was The Wabeno Feast 1973 While rooted in Northern Ontario, the story indicted modern industrial civilization as an extension of the European colonization of Canada by depicting an entire society s fall into ruin In her essay on Canadian Monsters Some Aspects of the Supernatural in Canadian Fiction , Margaret Atwood noted that Drew s use of the aboriginal wabeno revealed a concern with man s relationship to his society and to himself, as opposed to his relationship with the natural environment and she concluded that Drew s novel combined both concerns in a rather allegorical and very contemporary fashion.Many readers, though, surely know him better as the author of an ecological science fiction trilogy, the Erthring Cycle 1984 1986 , and of several movie novelizations Corvette Summer, Dragonslayer, Batteries Not Included, and Willow, the last three of which were translated into French and the second in German His non fiction also reflected his concern for the environment and interest for Canadian landscapes, as seen in books such as Superior The Haunted Shore and A Sea Within the Gulf of St Lawrence His final novel, Halfway Man 1989 , echoed themes from his first, The Wabeno Feast.


    1. Set in Northern Ontario around Lake Superior, this was a very magical,lyrical book about aboriginals trying to save their way of life against commercial development.It was also the story about Travis Niskigwun who is trying to save the past and live in the present times and Michael Gardner who lost his way and his wife and who is trying to find his way back. This book will live with me for a long time.

    2. Lyrical descriptions and mystical experiences lead the reader to experience the Lake Superior wilderness in a way only a native can. Explains why going "Up North" is a significant event in personal development for many.

    3. I was just remembering one of the best English teachers I ever had. I was so sad to hear that he'd died so soon after retiring.

    4. I liked the ideas, and the imagery, but found it hard to get through.I'd like to try picking it up another time, maybe I'd appreciate it more later.
