Explore the West Coast with Cathy Converse as she cruises to the same beautiful islands and inlets that Capi Blanchet travelled to more than a half-century ago, standing at the helm of a small boat named Caprice. Blanchet embarked on this adventure with her children, visiting Indigenous villages, watching grizzly bears in Knight Inlet and experiencing people and places up and down the coast. While this story, as recounted in The Curve of Time, is well known, Capi herself remained an enigma. In Following the Curve of Time, Converse introduces readers to previously unrevealed sides of the notoriously private woman who lived an amazing and daring life.
Cathy Converse is an award-winning bestselling author. She has been writing for over thirty years and has written and co-authored six books . Her fourth book, Following the Curve of Time: The Untold Story of Capi Blanchet, was honoured as one of the top five books chosen for the BC Book Prize Bill Duthie Booksellers’ Choice Award.
Cathy was raised in the sunshine of California and Hawaii but has spent her adult years living along the craggy, windswept shores of British Columbia. Using the ocean as her anchor, she spent much of her time surfing, white-water kayaking, canoeing, and sailing the coastline from Panama to Alaska.
