This book is about Tim McDonnell growing up at Gateway Lodge on Hungry Jack Lake in northeastern Minnesota. It was fun for me to read as my family has a cabin not far from the lodge. I knew so many of the places he talked about and had experienced many of the same adventures. Since I am older than Tim, the area was even more primitive when I was a child. I am in the process of writing a memoir of growing up at the cabin and wanted to see how Tim approached his memoir.
