about

A paperback edition of the BC Book Award–nominated biography of Capi Blanchet, the author of the BC coastal classic, The Curve of Time.

After her husband died in 1926 from a suspected drowning, Capi Blanchet spent every summer cruising BC's west coast with her five children and their dog in the family's 25-foot boat. The Curve of Time is the book Capi wrote chronicling these adventures, and it remains a bestseller and a classic in the annals of nautical literature. But little is known about the rest of her life. Cathy Converse found herself asking: who was this skipper, this mother, this writer?

In this biography, Converse offers insiders' recollections of this enigmatic woman, along with family photos and updated information about the villages, inlets and islands described in The Curve of Time. Following the Curve of Time is essential reading for anyone who has ever been captivated by the book, the West Coast or Capi herself.

Cathy Converse has been writing for over thirty years and has written and co-authored six books and numerous cover stories for magazines and journals. She is the author of Against the Current: The Remarkable Life of Agnes Deans Cameron. For more information, please visit cathyconverse.com.
