I absolutely adored this book! Susan Vreeland never fails to enchant, surprise, and illuminate. Her style is subtle yet powerful; the character of the Canadian painter Emily Carr was brought fully to life, as was her world. I had never heard of Emily Carr before I read this book. Afterwards I was googling her paintings and could not believe that this feisty, strong-willed, pig-headed and vulnerable woman was not more widely known. Her paintings are extraordinary - bold, unconventional and filled with light and mystery. Susan Vreeland’s wonderful book is a wonderful introduction to her art, and to the world of the indigenous people of British Columbia.
