Mother Nature In Charge: Devils Lake Life Stories

Devils Lake area residents’ lives and homes have been torn apart by the expanding lake that has engulfed the basin since hard rains began in 1993. Mother Nature In Charge: Devils Lake Life Stories examines the plight of the area’s frustrated residents, including horse farm owner Tammy Tollefson, whose only access in and out of her property is a duck boat, and Dan Webster, a farmer who has already had to burn one farm to the ground and is trying to keep his operation above water, so to speak. Harriet Horner-Larson, now living in Fordville, has been forced to raze two houses because of raging waters and unlivable conditions. And miles away, in Churchs Ferry, mayor Paul Christenson is nearly the last man standing as the tiny town is on the verge of de-consolidating.
