“Our global then was once each extensive and slim — extensive within the immensity of sea and mountain; slim in that the boat was once very small, and we lived and camped, explored and swam in a bit of realm of our personal making.”
— M. Wylie Blanchet
The fiftieth anniversary model of this coastal British Columbia vintage, now in superbly illustrated hardcover, will make a undying memento. It is a biography and miraculous journey tale of a lady who, left a widow in 1927, packed her 5 youngsters onto a 25-foot boat and cruised the coastal waters of British Columbia, summer season after summer season. Muriel Wylie Blanchet acted unmarried-handedly as skipper, navigator, engineer and, in fact, mom, as she noticed her team thru encounters with tides, fog, storms, rapids, cougars and bears. She sharpened in her youngsters a distinct pastime in Haida tradition and in nature itself.
On this ebook, she left us with a delicate and compelling account in their trips.
