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; Dan Wester, 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, who has been forces to raze two houses because of raging waters and unlivable conditions; and miles away in Churches Ferry, mayor Pauld Christenson is nearly the last man standing as the tiny town is on the verge of de-consolidating.
Production funding has been provided by Ramsey National Bank & Trust Company, Bergstrom Cars, Nodak Electric Cooperative, Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource Board, and by the members of Prairie Public.
