The Heart of A PeacockeBook - 2005
In this much-loved collection of 51 short stories, writer and painter Emily Carr writes of the people and animals in her life. In her inimitable style -- direct, vital, vivid -- she tells of her experiences with Native people, her adventures with birds, her love of nature, and of her mischievous pet monkey Woo. The Heart of a Peacock affirms Carr's standing as a writer with the sharp yet tender eye of an artist, with a deep feeling for the tragedies of life, and with a rich sense of the comic.
