Author; Emily Carr, with an introduction by David P. Silcox; Publisher: Figure 1 Publishing, Vancouver; According to the donor 'This book tells the story of Emily and her sister Alice on a trip to Alaska in 1907. It is based upon Emily's diary of the trip to Alaska, which was lost for about 60 years until it was discovered in the estate of artist Kathleen Daly Pepper. David Silcox approached Masters Gallery [Calgary] for financial support to publish the long lost diary and its illustrations. This is the last copy of the 149 books printed.'
