Emily Carr's Neighbourhood:
Walking Tour with Robert Amos and Tour of Carr House by Jan Ross
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.
