M. Wylie Blanchet’s — The curve of time *****

M. Wylie Blanchet’s — The curve of time *****

After being widowed in 1927, Blanchet took off with her children as skipper in her seven metre boat every summer to tour deserted inlets and abandoned First Nation villages. She cruised from her home on Vancouver Island along the Straight of Georgia between the Gulf Islands braving storms and engine breakdowns single handed.

This is a wonderful memoir that made me feel I was on an extended holiday to these isolated and pristine locations.
