Defiant Victorian, drawn to the deep forest and the open sky. Early recorder of Northwest Coast monumental art. Painter. Writer. Humorist. Emily Carr is all of these, and she is uniue in the Canadian cultural pantheon.

We know much about Emily Carr , but what of the social and political contexts that surrounded her, that defined her image and her posterity?

This groundbreaking book by three distinguished senior curators -- Charles C. Hill , Johanne Lamoureux , Ian M. Thom -- and seven equally distinguished Canadian essayists -- Jay Stewart & Peter Macnair , Shirley Bear & Susan Crean , Marcia Crosby , Andrew Hunter , and Gerta Moray -- sheds new light on Emily Carr and her world.

Emily Carr might not be a household name in the United States. I wonder if she is even this in Canada. She was definitely a character and an individual whose painting and drawings reflects her affinity to the First Nations of Vancouver Island where she lived. She had an innate sense of the forest and was able to depict it's lively energy in her work.
