"Following the Curve of Time" by Cathy Converse

One of the first books Wayne and I read about boating along the BC coast was the classic The Curve of Time by 2008, Cathy Converse published the biography Following the Curve of Time: The Legendary M. Wylie Blancet. Not only did Converse retrace the life of this very private woman, but she also followed her cruising path up and down the British Columbia coast. Things have really changed over the years. Where rugged individuals once lived in the wilderness, now homesteads sit abandoned. But the immense ocean and landscape endures. Where few boaters once ventured, now summer visitors flock to take in the supernatural expanses. M. Wylie (Capi to her friends) lead an interesting, if reclusive, life both on the water and Vancouver Island. Through Cathy's research, the woman behind the story comes to life once again.
Following the Curve of Time is available at local bookstores, on BC Ferries, as well as online in both print and Kindle/ebook versions.
