Celie's Story

Celie Smith. The outdoors woman unlike any other you've ever met.

She's 88 years old for one thing. But that doesn't keep her from her
woodpile, her garden, her snowmachine or her hunting camp. Celie sets
her own snares, traps her own beaver and kills her own bears.

Celie's practically a legend in Hawke's Bay on Newfoundland's Northern
Peninsula. This powerhouse of a woman backs down from nothing and works
as hard as any man.
