Storyline

Tim Shipman returns to his father's logging company only to find his father has been killed, money is owed, and Croft Brunner controls the railroad used to haul out the logs. But he learns the Government restriction on his valuable stand of timber has been lifted. Brunner wants that timber and tries to buy him out. Refusing to sell, Tim makes plans to somehow get the timber out. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Rival logging crews vie for timber acreage
17 March 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A prodigal son returns to the northwest logging territory to reclaim his family business which had been shut down due to the death of his father. Things got rough in the community as the other firm's owner stopped at nothing to be number one. Lots of singing, dancing, and fisticuffs in this high action yarn.
