Betsy and Saganaga: One Lake, One Life


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.
