A documentary on Detroit Lakes native Caroline Smith has earned producer-director Dana Johnson an Emmy.

Pioneer Public Television actually received four Emmy nominations – another featuring nearby Steam Threshers in Rollag – but “My Way Back Home: Caroline Smith” was the only one to take home the trophy.


“In every category we were nominated in, we were up against pretty stiff competition from the Twin Cities,” Johnson said.
