While studying art in London, Emily Carr seriously undermined her health and was sent to a sanatorium for a complete rest cure. Bridling at the hospital's rules, which prohibited excitement of any kind, the always rebellious Carr proceeded to make friends, raise birds, and cause trouble. In words and enchanting sketches, Carr presents a funny, poignant account of her 18-month convalescence.

An odd little book, but endearing all the same. She notices all sorts of things, gives brief description of people and the unusual institution. She clearly was someone who could make the best of bad circumstances. The sketches inside are incredibly bad, like those of a twelve year old.
