A pictorial history of the Burgess family at their cottage on Lake Joseph, Ontario, from the late 1800's to the present day.

The boat is a step hull Ditchburn Viking built in Muskoka, Ontario in 1929 for Mr. Fred Burgess and Mowitza is the name of a fawn from an old native story.

The inspiration for the painting came from many old photographs and a childhood vision.
