Curve of Time
The Classic Memoir of A Woman and Her Children Who Explored the Coastal Waters of the PacificDownloadable Audiobook - 2014
After her husband died in 1927, leaving her with five small children, everyone expected the struggles of single motherhood on a remote island to overcome M. Wylie Blanchet. Instead, this courageous woman became one of the pioneers of "family travel," acting as both mother and captain of the twenty-five-foot boat that became her family's home during the long Northwest summers. Blanchet's lyrically written account reads like fantastic fiction, but her adventures are all very real. There are dangers -- rough water, bad weather, wild animals -- but there are also the quiet respect and deep peace of a woman teaching her children the wonder and awesome depth of the natural world.
