Walking the Old Road: Summer at Philamene's

Summer in Grand Portage-Mixdown.mp312.85 MB

When he was a young boy, Francis Drouillard of Grand Marais, spent several summers at a family friend's home in Mineral Center, close to the Canadian Border. Philamene Evans lived alone the rest of the year but needed help in the summers running her household and managing her souvenir stand. Francis tells the story of spending summers at Philamene's where he learned many valuable lessons about traditional hunting and fishing and how to live off the land.
