At 94, Doris McCarthy remains one of Canada's great living artists, prolific in her output. With a special passion for the Canadian landscape, she carries on the tradition of the Group of Seven. An avid traveller, who taught art for forty years, Doris paints with a joyful energy that often feels unparalleled.

This latest memoir, filled with colour and black & white photographs, and the artist's paintings, focuses on her 92nd summer. Her ritual of summers spent at her cottage on Georgian Bay is evoked through her recollections of rich days of painting interspersed with visits from friends, and her approach to life and the world around her. The reader comes to understand why she has become a living legend and one of Canada's greatest treasures.

Full of images of her work, as well as photographs of Doris, her home, and friends and colleagues, Doris McCarthy: Ninety Years Wiseis an extraordinary window on this remarkable life.
