About the book
Used book. Paperback. Good condition
This is a biography and an astonishing adventure story of a woman who, left a widow in 1927, packed her five children into a 25-foot boat and cruised the coastal waters of British Columbia, summer after summer.
Muriel Wylie Blanchet acted single-handedly as skipper, navigator, engineer and, of course, mum, as she saw her crew through encounters with tides, fog, storms, rapids, cougars, and bears. She sharpened in her children a special interest in the ancient Haida culture and in nature itself. In this book, she left us with a sensitive and compelling account of their journeys.
