When Susan Chaffee first travelled to Lutsel’ke, along the east arm of Great Slave Lake, she worked as a dishwasher at a remote tourist camp.
But she had grander ambitions.
She wanted to be the first female guide along the East Arm of Great Slave Lake.
Being the only female in a male dominated world was tough.
But so was Chaffee.
Chaffee spent a number of years acting as a guide for tourists and the occasional celebrity, including Johnny Cash.
