26. The Life of Emily Carr by Paula Blanchard

A thoroughly researched, balanced biography of Canadian  painter and author Emily Carr (1871 -1945). Makes you realize how isolated Victoria and Vancouver were during her life time. Details her early years,  family life, love of animals, education and development as an artist. Doesn't dwell on her supposed eccentricities and volatile temper.
