Tom Roberts chose to be a painter at the age of eight and never strayed from his path. He dedicated his life to producing works that captured the natural beauty and the history of Canada. "I want people to feel this wonderful country," Roberts once said. This insightful and heartfelt biography by his daughter Celia chronicles the life of a valuable Canadian artist from his childhood in Toronto's Parkdale district, through his years of formal education and rigorous outdoor practicum, his near starvation during the Great Depression, and his years as husband and father, traveling coast to coast with his family in tow, setting up his easel in all seasons to capture everything he could of his beloved country -- from the grand ruggedness of Newfoundland to timeless images of children playing hockey on a frozen pond.
