Emily Carr: The Heart of a Peacock

Regular price $16.95

A collection of 51 short stories by the legendary writer and painter Emily Carr, arranged in themes such as her experiences with Native people, her adventures with various beloved creatures and her love of nature. Together, they underline Carr's place as a writer with the sharp yet tender eye of an artist, with a deep feeling for the tragedies of life and with a rich sense of the comic. The book is enhanced by seven of Carr's line drawings of scenes from nature.

The Heart of a Peacock is the fourth of the seven books by Emily Carr to be published by Douglas & McIntyre in a completely redesigned edition, each with an introduction by a noted Canadian writer or an authority on Emily Carr and her work.
