Books

Book One: Vancouver Island

2015 NATJA TransEmily Carr was an epic traveller. She covered more than 20,000 kilometres in British Columbia during a time when women rarely set off on their own — certainly not with the intention of visiting remote aboriginal villages. While this wanderlust and fearless sense of adventure fuelled her reputation as an eccentric, it also propelled her to become the artist and author we revere today.

Laurie Carter set out to rediscover Vancouver Island by following Carr’s path, delving into the home life, landscapes and First Nations traditions that shaped the woman and her work. Emily Carr’s B.C.: Vancouver Island is a personal journey to a new perspective, an exploration of Vancouver Island’s best-loved destinations and all-but-unknown outposts, and a fresh take on evolving life in this province.

Book Two: Northern BC & Haida Gwaii

Emily Carrs BC-Northern BC & Haida Gwaii Med ResJournalist 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.
