Memoirs of a Media Maverick is an insider’s critical account of the modern media. Richardson tells the intriguing story of his travels as a journalist and filmmaker in New Zealand, Australia, India, Britain, and Canada.
A prolific author and film director, Richardson’s work has focused on Aboriginal peoples, the environment and human rights. His films, including Cree Hunters of the Mistassini, have won many awards.
There’s no gloom around this media maverick …Richardson, the world’s most cheerful pessimist.
– Charles Gordon, The Ottawa Citizen
Boyce Richardson has long been a great hero of mine. His works stand as a needed and timely inspiration for all of today’s journalism.
– Roy MacGregor, The Globe and Mail
