Getting the Wilderness in You
by William M. Sanderson
This is the story of Rolf Skrien, perhaps one of the most knowledgeable local historians on the BWCAW. Rolf arrived in the Gunflint Trail area in the 1940's, learning the country while he paddled many of its lakes and guided with the Indians. He started the first full service canoe outfitting business on Seagull Lake. If you love the Boundary Waters and want to have first hand experience of what it was like in the "good old days" this book is for you.
