This book reproduces the journals and correspondence of Elling Seglem, who fished the waters of Lake Superior from Fisherman's Home on Isle Royale between 1920 and 1932. A photographer during the winter, Seglem was extremely creative in designing and illustrating newspaper-format letters home to his family in Chicago. His letters and journals tell of the hard work and pleasures of the simple life on this isolated island. Seglem's sense of humor and attention to detail make his writing a delight to read. Lots of historic photographs, drawings, and cartoons. 185 pages.
