“The Rainy Lake watershed itself has neither farms or cities. It spreads its web of wooded lakes among the granite ridges like a huge open fan, 14,500 square miles in extent. One-third in Minnesota, two-thirds in Ontario. In its isolation, it has become a natural repository for the past. To its rich history of explorers, fur traders, and Indian warriors, is added all that was once America—the forests, the game, and the Indians themselves.”

“Moving to Rainy Lake was one of the dreams of my life—like a bright thread running through my life.”
