Shortlisted for the 2005-2006 Red Cedar Book Award, Nonfiction

Selected as Honour Book by the Children's Literature Roundtable Information Book of the Year

The brilliant artist Emily Carr lived at the edge. When she was born, in 1871, Victoria, British Columbia was a small, insular place. She was at the edge of a society that expected well-bred young ladies to marry. For years, she was at the edge of the world of artists she longed to join.

Emily Carr’s life was not an easy one. She struggled against a family that did not approve of her art and against poor health. She found her pleasures in her many pets – a Javanese monkey named Woo, parrots, and many beloved dogs. Later, she would meet the artists of the Group of Seven and among them find her soul mates.

When illness put a stop to her painting, she found expression and comfort in her writing. Her bookKlee Wyck received Canada’s highest literary honor – the Governor General’s Award.

Emily Carr: At the Edge of the World is an introduction to this remarkable artist and her paintings.

Recensione:

“With an excellent-quality, full-color reproduction of Carr’s work facing every page of text, this is a gorgeous look at the Canadian artist’s life...”
School Library Journal

“This beautiful biography...will interest a wide variety of readers.... The finely detailed line drawings...by folk artist Maxwell Newhouse capture the very essence of Emily’s appearance, her charming pets and her vigorous creativity. The text is thoughtful, sensitive and respectful.... Jo Ellen Bogart is able to give the reader a glimpse into the creative heart of an artist and let readers know about the person in a very accessible and readable book... Highly Recommended.”
CM Magazine

“...a crisply written biography, filled with well-chosen detail.... Folk artist Maxwell Newhouse supplies airy, whimsical pen-and-ink line drawings that provide a nice contrast to the brooding intensity of Carr’s oils.”
Quill & Quire

“...excellent.... Illustrator Maxwell Newhouse has complemented the full-color reproductions of Carr’s work with folksy drawings featuring scenes of her life.”
Toronto Sun

“...an accessible biography of an extraordinary artist, enhanced by lovely reproductions of her paintings, and by Maxwell Newhouse’s appealing folk art sketches.... [A] fascinating account...”
