M. Wylie Blanchet
M. Wylie Blanchet, née Muriel Wylie Liffiton (2 May 1891 – 9 September 1961) was a Canadian travel writer.
"Capi" Blanchet was born in Montreal, Quebec, and married Geoffrey Orme Blanchet on 30 May 1909. Following her husband's death in a suspected drowning in 1926, Blanchet embarked on annual summer cruises along the British Columbia coast with her five children in the family's 25 foot boat, the Caprice. Her 1961 book, The Curve of Time, is an account of these travels. The title has undergone several editions in Canada and Scotland and has been described as a title which "hovers perpetually on or near the list of 10 best-selling non-fiction books in B.C."
