I posted a story about Dickie Powell the other day on my blog and on Facebook and everyone loved reading it. Dickie is a resident on the Canadian side of Saganaga Lake and has tons of stories to tell as does anyone who has spent their life in a remote wilderness. John Bouchard has a number of stories to tell about Saganaga Lake as well and thankfully he has put them in a book called, “Life on the Invisible Line.” He was a Canadian Game Warden and spent eighteen years on Saganaga Lake. I first heard of John while dining at a cabin on the Canadian side of Sag. There was a poem called Saganaga with neat drawings around it and John’s name was on it. It always intrigued me and now I have even more stories of his to be intrigued by. If you’re interested in purchasing a copy then send me an email and I’ll let you know the cost. firstname.lastname@example.org
Islands of pine mirror reflections hard to define
evening roselight changing scenes
Portages of yesterday stir memories forgotten echoing dreams
Like a gull soars to gather or a feather of float
roots cling to rock a rabbit hides from a hawk….
