Well told tale of family conflicts in a small lumber town
23 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Well told tale of conflicts that arise between members of an extended family in a small Oregon lumber town. Story unravels very effectively via flashback, as Graves journeys by boat down the treacherous Rogue River. Significant as an early effort by both Graves and Calhoun, both of whom do credit to their characters. 'Tis a shame this one is seldom seen!
