Format: Paperback
this book by Emily Carr gives a very wonderful and descriptive account of the Pacific Northwest along British Columbia's shores. Emily Carr was a very unique woman who defied her times in her interactions with Native Peoples and her adventurous independance. This book details her explorations among the Queen Charlotte Islands. It is so descriptive it makes one feel that they are actually on the west coast.

Emily Carr paints with words..... March 9 2011
By G. Fine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Emily Carr paints with words in this wonderful little book about her life. The stories give glimpses into the life and heart of this marvelous painter as she explores the Pacific NW coast in search of Native Totems to paint. A delightful piece of light reading which I like to re explore often.

An Incredible gem of a book - so glad I've found this author. Jan. 2 2012
By Cathy L - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The writing is beautiful and evocative leaving me with so many unanswered questions such as why were the native women's children dying one after the other? Be careful of the kindle version - it is full of errors which totally ruins the experience of reading this wonderful book. If I hear back from Amazon that they have remedied this situation I'll come back and change this review

Short and not at all simple Sept. 3 2013
By moss-covered in seattle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Emily Carr is known in our time as a wonderful, regional Expressionist painter whose subjects are Pacific Northwest landscapes. But as a writer, she intimately reveals the quiet beauty of women's lives in the region. Klee Wyck is a series of perfectly polished vignettes of Carr's encounters. I hear it's required reading in the British Columbia school system. To me, it's essential reading to feel the region.
