A novelist, journalist, socialite, botanist, explorer, and World War I ambulance driver, Julia Henshaw was a unique and colourful personality. This graphic biography follows her eventful life from Montreal to Vancouver, from Banff to London, and from the mining towns of BC’s Kootenays to the battlefields of France and Belgium. Her strongly expressed views of women’s roles and voting rights, of racial and class issues, and of Canada’s relationship to Great Britain and the US are an illuminating contrast with the values of her contemporaries, and with society today.
