This is a biography and astonishing adventure story of a woman who,
left a widow in 1927, packed her five children onto 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 Haida culture and in nature itself.
In this book, she left us with a sensitive and compelling account of
their journeys.
