Emily Carr’s BC: South Coast to the Interior

Posted by on Apr 5, 2019 in Blog, Books, Featured | Comments Off on Emily Carr’s BC: South Coast to the Interior

Emily Carrs BC-BOOK 3-FINAL.inddThe final volume of Laurie Carter’s groundbreaking trilogy, Emily Carr’s B.C., presents the culmination of a journey far beyond anything she ever imagined when she set out to explore the landscapes, historical environment, and First Nations traditions that shaped an icon. Author and artist Emily Carr led a merry chase to some of the best-loved destinations and remotest outposts of the province, revealing her character and motivation every step of the way. Wherever this epic traveller (and her trusty canine companions) ventured, Carter was determined to follow. Book three traces the Vancouver years; forays to the Cariboo, Shuswap, Thompson, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Canyon and Okanagan Valley; concluding with what we know today as the Sea-to-Sky corridor, Carr’s last great expedition.

Emily Carr’s BC: Northern BC & Haida Gwaii

Posted by on Jul 12, 2016 in Blog, Book News, Books, Featured | Comments Off on Emily Carr’s BC: Northern BC & Haida Gwaii

Website Media PageJournalist Laurie Carter knew she had a tiger by the tail when she set out to retrace the epic travels of Emily Carr, delving into the life, landscapes, and First Nations traditions that shaped an icon. She too has trekked more than 20,000 kilometres, though in greater comfort and probably raising fewer eyebrows than the lone artist and her dog. In this journey, Carter seeks to provide modern context while revealing the artist/author through Carr’s own words. Following up her Vancouver Island adventures, book two of Emily Carr’s B.C. explores Carr’s seminal expeditions to the Skeena and Naas Rivers of Northern B.C. and the islands of Haida Gwaii.
