    The Curve Of Time by Blanchet, M Wylie

    "Muriel Wylie Blanchet, 1891-1961, was born and educated near Montreal. In the early twenties she came to Vancouver Island with her husband and settled on a secluded waterfront overlooking Haro Strait with beautiful Mount Baker in the distance. Left a widow with five small children in 1927, she provided school lessons in winter and four months of sea cruising in summer. The voyages of discovery were made in a twenty-five foot boat, the Caprice. From this the children called their mother Capi and for them she sharpened her special interest in old Indian villages and the wonder of nature so abundant on the coast."
