An intimate and heartwarming collection of memories that puts one of Canada's most beloved and iconic artists into a whole new light.

In 1916, Emily Carr wasn’t famous. She was poor, and she taught art classes to children. One of her students was seven-year-old Carol Pearson. Pearson spent hours every day with Carr: they painted together at the water’s edge, and she helped care for the dogs, birds, monkey and other animals that Carr kept as pets. They grew very close, and at the age of 14, Carol moved in with Carr. Emily nicknamed Carol “Baboo,” and Carol called her “Mom.” The two were “mother-and-daughter” for twenty-five years, up until Carr passed away.

This touching tribute to Carr illustrates a gentleness and sensitivity not seen in other biographies. Originally published in 1954, this very unique biography reveals Carr's personality more fully than any other.
