The title of artist, writer, and rebel Emily Carr's first book means Laughing One, the nickname given her by the Native people of Canada's west coast. She returned the favor with Klee Wyck, a collection of 21 word portraits of their lives and ways. The memoir describes in witty, vivid detail Carr's visits and travels as she painted their totem poles and villages and got to know a people whose quiet strength healed my heart. The book is reissued here with restored text and features the original introduction by Ira Dilworth and a new introduction by Carr scholar Kathryn Bridge.
