Presenting three titles in the Quest Biography series that profiles prominent figures in Canadaâ€™s history. Canadaâ€™s vast wilderness presents many opportunities for artists to capture its beauty in their distinct styles, and the country has produced its share of talented landscape painters. Tom Thomsonâ€™s work is known the world over for its wild, vivid portrayals of Ontarioâ€™s wilderness. Emily Carr captured the lushness of the west coast as well as the traditional culture of the indigenous peoples.
