Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0968879705, Paperback)

In the spring of 1941, Gertrude Baskerville set out from the Kitchener area with her ailing husband and 16-year old son to join her brother in establishing a new life on the shores of South Tea Lake in Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada. Within a year her husband had died from injuries received during WWI, her son had been shipped overseas to fight in WWII and her brother had decided that better opportunity lay for him and his family to move to British Columbia. Gertie, as she was called, was totally alone. But Algonquin Park had captured her soul, so rather than return to Kitchener, she decided to stay and see if she could carve our a life for herself in the Algonquin wilderness. This is her story.
