Her story is one of tragedy and adventure: from homestead beginnings to genteel drawing rooms in Winnipeg, Victoria, and Vancouver; from to Berlin and Parisian art schools to the battlezones of Vimy and Ypres after the Great War. Join historian Kathryn A. Young as she tells Riter Hamilton’s story in words and images.
