The Curve of Time

50th Anniversary Hardcover Edition

At a time when Vancouver Island was still an extremely remote and sparsely populated backwater, a young widow packed her five children into a 25-foot boat dubbed The Caprice and set off on an adventure. Summer after summer the brave young mother, who became known as "Capi," would set sail and explore the rugged coastline for months with her young crew. Although the hazards the family faced were numerous-tides, fog, storms, rapids, cougars, and even grizzlies-Capi brought them through it all.
 
 
The Curve of Time is Capi's poignant, thoughtful, and poetic recollection of these days.This classic coastal tale has been a bestseller since it was first published in 1961. That was also the year of the author's death. This special-release hardcover edition comes on the 50th anniversary of the book's publication, and features new archival photographs and a new afterword by Eileen Blanchet, the wife of Capi's son Peter Blanchet.
