Doris C. Lee was a twenty-four-year-old school teacher from Northern California when she moved to the Cariboo in central British Columbia to become a rancher in 1950. New to the challenges of country life, Doris was a willing learner with her husband, John, and several old-timers as mentors. At their ranch at Big Lake east of Williams Lake, Doris learned to ride horses, round up cattle, herd sheep, swing an ax, and live without the amenities she grew up with in the city. She and John raised two sons, Michael and Gary. Doris now lives in Williams Lake, BC.
