Book DescriptionIn 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, heradventures 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 richsense of the comic.
