I am an Emily Carr fan and enjoyed looking at this book. The book begins with a foreward written by Kathryn Bridge which describes the journal and explains the travels that Emily and her sister embarked on together. The journal itself is humourous and paints a picture of train travel across Canada in 1910. I am from Calgary and I liked reading about my own city and cities in Alberta. The reproduction of the journal is lovely. The drawings are beautiful. Carr's descriptions of many of the joys and woes of her travels had me smiling. It is simply written and could be enjoyed equally by adults and children.
