There’s a section of old growth forest in north central Minnesota, surrounded by once-logged land. The big trees remain due to a survey error in 1892, which labeled the area as a lake. A story engagingly told, and illustrated with Betsy’s bold acrylic paintings. A compendium adds details about the lives of land surveyors in the 1800’s.
