In a dramatized narrative written and told by Canadian poet Elizabeth Bachinsky, a young woman speaks of her ordeal at Wolf Lake. The Coast Mountains of British Columbia make a lush backdrop to her harrowing story of violence and betrayal. Wolf Lake is from Elizabeth Bachinsky's excellent collection Home of Sudden Service, Nightwood Editions, 2006.
