Forest Lover, The, VREELAND, Susan
133 5780 VREELAND, Susan Forest Lover, The
Hardcover Viking: NY; 2004; First US Edition 333 pages Very Good+ in Near Fine dust wrapper 
A lovely book. Faintly bumped spine ends and corners. Unclipped dust wrapper has faintest edgewear.; 'It was Emily Carr (1871-1945)—not Georgia O'Keeffe or Frida Kahlo—who first blazed a path for modern women artists, according to this novelized biography. Carr's boldly original landscapes are praised today for capturing an untamed British Columbia and its indigenous peoples just before industrialization would change them forever. Susan Vreeland brings to life this fiercely independent and underappreciated figure. From illegal potlatches in tribal communities to the gaiety of prewar Paris, Carr's story is arresting and vibrant, and Vreeland tells it with gusto and suspense.'

780 pages; Faint spine creases, spine head bumped and tiny tear repaired with archival tape, very light edgewear. ; The author's enjoyable blend of science and wit is turned toward a difficult subject. 'Psychologi st Dr Joanna Lander has spent two years at Mercy General Hospital studying patients who have been declared clinically dead but then revived. Many have had near-death experiences, NDEs, which are remarkably similar the world over. Then brilliant young neurologist Richard Wright discovers a way to induce an NDE using psychoactive drugs. He's convinced that NDEs are a survival mechanism, and that through them more patients might be brought back from the edge of death. When Joanna realizes that Richard's project is under threat due to a shortage of suitable subjects, she volunteers to take the dangerous journey to the limits of knowledge herself. Immediately fascinated by her simulated near-death experiences, Joanna becomes increasingly desperate to discover the meaning behind the strangely familiar images and feelings she encounters. As she begins to unravel the mystery, her sense of dread grows.' A plot twist in the last one hundred pages is unexpected and powerful. Recommended.; 'Once again, Willis has developed an idea that bears all the authority of a genuine insight: disturbingly plausible, compelling, intensely moving, and ultimately uplifting.' -Kirkus Reviews; Recommended by Norma H.
