|Victoria, BC, July 11th 1910.. With red eyes and a body guard of sniffing " faithfuls" attending us, we start on our long trip abroad..So begins Emily Carr''s memoirs of her trip to England with her sister Alice. They travel across Canada by rail to board an ocean liner in Quebec City, meeting interesting characters and having many adventures along the way. They hike in "gloriously cool and beautiful" Glacier House, and encounter porcupines and wasps in otherwise "heavenly" Lake Louise. They carry on to the "wonderful little town" of Medicine Hat, then Winnipeg, Montreal and "wonderful historic old" Quebec City, where they prepare for boarding the Empress of Ireland for Liverpool. Sister and I presents Emily Carr''s whimsical account of her trip across Canada, written and illustrated in her own hand, directly from Carr''s original notebook. This one-of-a-kind book is introduced by Kathryn Bridge, who places it in context with Carr''s life and works.|
