Emily Carr recorded the experience of the West Coast soul in her living landscapes and her portraits of BCs towering firs. Kate Braid, in To This Cedar Fountain, engages Carr in conversation as only a kindred spirit could: a West Coaster, an artist, a woman with an affinity for timber. In these poems Carrs sensual paintings envelop Braid; Emily romances the trees while Kate bears witness. To This Cedar Fountain is a dialogue between two BC legends, each a distinct voice for her own generation but both indisputably coastal souls. The first edition of this book was nominated for a Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize.
