Dorothy Molter: The Root Beer Lady of Knife Lake by Sarah Guy-Levar, Terri Schocke

Her name is synonymous with the Boundary Waters and root beer. Her story is one of struggle and triumph. Dorothy Molter lived in the BWCA for over 50 years - 15 miles and five portages from the nearest road. In 1952, a Saturday Evening Post article even declared her "The Loneliest Woman in America," though nothing could be further from the truth, as she received countless visitors over the years. This is the biography of the Nightingale of the Wilderness, of a woman who fought the government for her land, of a woman whose life inspired a museum in her honor.

About the Author

Sarah Guy-Levar has been the Executive Director of the Dorothy Molter Museum in Ely, Minnesota, since 2007. When not hauling cases of Dorothy Molter's Isle of Pines Root Beer, she enjoys reading, singing, community theater, scrapbooking, camping, dog sledding, entertaining, Tuesday morning breakfast club, and, much like Dorothy, coffee with friends. Sarah resides on Burntside Lake with her husband, Andy, daughters Laura and Claire, fourteen sled dogs and one cat.

Terri Schocke began her life in Indiana where she met her husband, Terry. They moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1978, before moving to Ely, MN, in 1997. While living in Ely, Terri has been involved with the Ely Winter Festival, the North American Bear Center and is currently employed at the Dorothy Molter Museum. In addition to photography, a hobby that she shares with her husband, she enjoys canoeing the lakes of the BWCA.
