    “Yes, and Paddle to the Sea! BM carved several of the red canoes from the famous book in order to make that Canadian Classic--one was sent over Niagara Falls with a camera attached. He also made a film version of Cry of the Wild, keeping wolves in his "backyard" on Meech Lake to get some of the shots, before releasing them again. BM loved Lake Superior. His ashes are sprinkled in Old Woman's Bay. northwater” — northwater, 24 Aug 2012

    “A great 70's -80's film about a great part of our great country. Slow & prodding, by today's 'fast-food' style of video editing standards, the film slowly draws one in like the serene landscape that it pokes at... I believe this person wrote & directed 'RISE & FALL OF THE GREAT LAKES'; a 70's gem that I saw as a kid (hold onto yur hat when you watch!).” — DrKas, 27 Dec 2010
