This is the story about the relationship between Betsy Powell and Saganaga Lake. For nearly 70 years, Betsy lived on this remote lake between the US and Canada, trapping, fishing, hunting, and guiding fishing parties. She built her own cabin and traveled miles on foot and by boat for supplies, all without the luxuries of electricity or running water. The remarkable woman used her skills to survive, adapt and thrive on this lake, which is now a part of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Betsy is likely the last of a generation to be so intimately connected to water and land. Find out:
- what it took for day-to-day survival, including cutting ice and going out for supplies
- how she built cabins for herself and others
- how she created a lifestyle she loved with Frank Powell
