248 pp, oblong small 4to (10 1/4" H x 12 1/8" D x 1 3/16" W). Signed on half title page by artist and author: "A Y. Jackson / Naomi Jackson Groves." Pictorial endpapers, reproductions of over 100 monotone pencil drawings by A.Y. Jackson. "We follow the artist on his travels across the wide stretches of snow and ice of the eastern Arctic, down through the small fishing villages of the Maritimes, around the Gaspe and through the winding streets of Quebec's citadel city. He leads us across rural Ontario and into the thick wilderness of Algoma, across the sweeping Prairies to the Rockies, and into the lush vegetation of the Northwest Coast, on through the ghost towns of the Yukon, and so to the wide expanse of snow and ice of the Northwest Territories. The text is a perfect complement to the drawings. With exuberance and devotion to her subject, the author brings a wealth of historical and aesthetic information to each composition. In every case, the text is a valuable commentary on the pencil drawing, but it also has an individual life of its own. Joey Smallwood, the Halifax explosion, the Indian legends of Marius Barbeau, and the Group of Seven have a place here. So does documentation on the size, date and circumstances of each drawing, including passages from AY's letters and journals." Two minor tiny dents on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has very light to light edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, one very small edge tear (archivally taped) with soft crease, very small tear (archivally taped) and crease at top of rear flap fold, light rubbing - including a few tiny line indentations on rear panel, light edge wrinkling at top of rear flap area.
