It's a charming and intimate biography, a love letter from a daughter to her progressive mother who broke glass ceilings with simple curiosity and desire. Betty trained to swim in the 1936 Olympic Games. She eloped on a hunch and learned the tough lessons of love. With an entrepreneurial creativity and a drive for self-sufficiency, Betty found meaning as a sculptor, a dental hygienist, a jeweler, a potter and a poet, and finally, as a world class surfer. The book dedication says it all: "For all the women who have surfed, and who will surf, in Betty's wake." Drop in as we surf the tides of fortune with Vicky Durand.
