Storyline

Nick, a 17-year-old in search of his father, gains employment with a logging company in a beautiful and mysterious virgin forest known as the Limberlost. Through his relationships with new associates and his adventures in this new and strange environment, Nick learns the value of personal honesty and integrity and discovers what defines true friendship. He finds himself torn between his affection for Angelica, who believes with her Aunt Olivia that the forest should be preserved, and loyalty to his boss, the owner of the lumber company. In the end, this city boy must choose between his own safety and the lives of those he has come to love. Written by City Boy

Well crafted story of a young man's coming of age in frontier America
13 July 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Nick, a handicapped orphan from Chicago, is in search of his father in the American frontier of the early 20th century. Simon, another vagabond youth, befriends Nick and the two settle in a small town centered on the local logging operations. Nick gets a job with the local logging company and is smitten with a local girl while Simon hooks up with those that are stealing from the lumbermen.

When the two sides reach their inevitable confrontation, Nick must confront his demons.

This is a well told story that starts a bit slow but has some great moments. It's interesting to see how the `city boy' discovers the wonders of nature. The toothsome Christian Campell, Neve's brother does a credible job in the lead role but looks enough like his sister that anyone who is familiar with her work gets a sense of déjà vu throughout.
