Emily Carr was an epic traveller. She covered more than 20,000 kilometres in British Columbia during a time when women rarely set off on their own—certainly not with the intention of visiting remote aboriginal villages. While this wanderlust and fearless sense of adventure fuelled her reputation as an eccentric, it also propelled her to become the artist and author we revere today. Laurie Carter set out to rediscover Vancouver Island by following Carr’s path, delving into the home life, landscapes and First Nations traditions that shaped the woman and her work. Emily Carr’s B.C.: Vancouver Island is a personal journey to a new perspective, an exploration of Vancouver Island’s best-loved destinations and all-but-unknown outposts, and a fresh take on evolving life in this province.  This is the first book in a trilogy.
