Thunder Bay Writers are Northern and Wild

Check out the April-May issue of Northern Wilds, available free around town. You'll find familiar Thunder Bay names such as Gord Ellis, writing about - what else - fishing and Elinor Barr who gives us the story of Madame Margaret Matthews  a business woman on the Gunflint trail whose establishment was much appreciated by local trappers, miners and bush men.

But the best story, in my opinion comes from Elle Andra-Warner who tells a tale from the War of 1812, when Captain McGargo of the North West Company decided to hide a ship to keep it safe from maurading Americans. And he did it on American territory.

This free paper always has lots of good articles but this issue is a beaut.
