Written by her protege and fellow folklorist, Clary Croft, this intimate biography offers both an intriguing portrait of a woman whose life was destined to become woven into the fabric of Canadian folklore, and a fascinating glimpse into the social mores of her time. Painstakingly researched, with excerpts from Dr. Creighton's personal diaries and correspondence, this book reveals the complexities of a woman whose life's work brought her fame, respect and sometimes censure"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
