“At once ethereal and immediate, Sarah Burwash’s new book The Far Woods is the result of years spent exploring far-flung communities and remote wilderness across the country. Her work weaves together traditions of illustration, sewing, collage and quilting.” — National Post

“It’s a sometimes fanciful, often magical portrayal of woman as explorer, even though it can embrace a grim reality as well.”
— North Adams Transcript

“Burwash takes these stories and illustrates them in a fierce but emotive style that pulls you in to that dark forest. The water-coloured imagery takes us to pastures and woodlands to see women fearlessly negotiating new situations. Though the book has no words, there is a clear narrative.”
— The Coast
