Born in 1931 during the Great Depression, Betty Frank (nee Cox) grew up in Coastal British Columbia on a tiny island named after her father in the logging and fishing community of Owen Bay just off Sonora Island. Her Dutch immigrant parents raised five children. Betty was both the oldest and the wildest. After an exciting career in the Cariboo, Betty Frank relocated to Quadra Island, but she still takes care of the lodge and cabin on Quesnel Lake where she once guided, trapped and cut shakes years ago. She cowrote her memoir, The Legendary Betty Frank, with Sage Birchwater.
