Hundreds and Thousands

The Journals of Emily Carr

By: Emily Carr
Introduction by: Gerta Moray

Emily Carr's journals from 1927 to 1941 portray the happy, productive period when she was able to resume painting after dismal years of raising dogs and renting out rooms to pay the bills. These revealing entries convey her passionate connection


FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1966, after the legendary artist and writer Emily Carr died in 1945, Hundreds and Thousands consists of her journals from 1927 to 1941. She began keeping a journal in 1927, when, after years of her work being derided and ignored, came unexpected vindication and triumph when the Group of Seven accepted her as one of them and encouraged her to overcome the years of despair when she stopped painting. Hundreds and Thousands is the sixth of seven books by Emily Carr to be published by Douglas & McIntyre in a completely redesigned edition, each with an introduction by a noted Canadian writer or an authority on Emily Carr and her work.
