"Complementing the essays are more than 300 images printed in full colour or in halftones. Among them are artworks from the 1927 Exhibition of Canadian West Coast Art: Native and Modern and photographs, films, tourist brochures, and maps documenting the British Columbia of Carr's day. However, it is the art that dominates, with over 150 paintings, drawings, and caricatures, as well as rugs and pottery by Emily Carr in addition to works by contemporary colleagues."--Jacket." ;
