M. Wylie 'Capi' Blanchet has accompanied many a seafarer on the B.C. coast-her bestselling book, The Curve of Time, introduced us to a resilient, adventurous, and enigmatic woman ahead of her time. Widowed in 1926, Capi cruised the coast in her 25-foot boat, the Caprice, with her five children and their dog. Beyond this incredible story, however, little is known about the rest of her life. What tied Capi to the West Coast, despite her upbringing and family ties in EasternCanada? What made her see possibility in a boat that had been sunk to the bottom? Insiders' recollections, and her own travels along Capi's route help Cathy Converse explore this very private woman. In revisiting these villages, inlets and islands described in The Curve of Time, Converse evokes Capi's spirit and enriches the impressions she left behind.
