Read in January, 1996

I started reading Emily Carr's books while on a vacation with my dad in Victoria, BC, near where Emily Carr grew up. Her art is famous, but sadly her writing has faded into the background. IT shouldn't - it's brilliant. This book is a childhood memoir in the best old-fashioned sense. IT's a quick read and a lot of fun. The history is interesting and the family dynamic is great.

Maybe not for everybody, but I sure liked it, even at 16.
