For all its editorial additions, this edition lacks a map, so the reader has no idea where the places are that the writer is going to.
The book is a collection of a series of vignettes of life, friends, and places of the author, with only an open-minded kindliness as a theme that holds it together. The writing tone is soft and quiet, rather like Naipaul (of Miguel Street), but without the smile and without the scorn.

Written by and about my favourite Canadian. Emily Carr writes short stories of her life, her art, and her friendship with the NW Coast first nations people. A compassionate, slightly eccentric, and fiercely independent voice.

I have to admit I’m pretty disappointed with this one. I was so completely blown away by The House Of All Sorts, and this earlier work is nowhere near as powerful despite a bigger landscape. There are some eerie pictures painted of empty Indian government villages and their abandoned totem poles, but there seems to be no beginning, no end, and no flow. Too bad, as this one won the Governor General’s award.
