I came across this book among newspapers at a tourist shop at a B.C. Ferry Terminal. Certainly not where anyone would expect a book of this quality to be on display. The appeal of the design of the hard cover alone was enough to invite closer inspection. Sharing Emily Carr's journal of her travels with her sister from Victoria to London in 1910 is a delight. Each entry is accompanied by a sketch of one amusing or frustrating incident in the day as only Emily could see it. It is a delightful book & one that should be on every Canadian's wish list. Congratulations to the Royal B. C. Museum for producing such a treasure.
After my initial purchase I was pleased to see the book is available from Amazon & promptly ordered 2 more copies.
