Klee Wyck

By Carr, Emily




Emily Carr's painting and writing were inspired by her lifelong fascination with Native culture and the landscape of British Columbia that she so cherished.Available for the first time in enriched e-book format, this edition offers visual and historical insights into Carr's perspective via electronic weblinks. Like a full-colour footnote, select words and phrases throughout the book are links to websites that contain a wealth of additional information, pictures, definitions and historical information that gives context to the text. Now, with the click of a mouse, you can investigate the world of Emily Carr without having to leave your screen.Klee Wyck, first published in 1941, is a collection of twenty-one sketches that document her experiences with British Columbia's indigenous people. It won the Governor General's Award that same year. The title Klee Wyck originated from the nickname given to Carr by one of the Native communities she befriended at Ucluelet. It means "laughing one."
