The Torch aflame

April 28, 2014


A fair number of blue waters in the North Country are named Torch Lake or Lac du Flambeau. We trace the name to fishing by torchlight in the times before these times – the days of endless forests of tall pines and canoes paddled by Anishinaabe and Metis voyageurs. We imagine the torches flickering in […]

Babs is better

April 21, 2014
