If you've ever been curious about the fabled Maine log drives of historical lore, this film will satisfy your curiosity. See real lumberjacks, deep in the Maine woods, and delicately balancing on spinning logs in the Machias River, while breaking up log jams that could kill a man. (Yes. That's where the term, log jam comes from.) This shows legendary woodsman skill and daring. Even today, with all the modern equipment available, logging is still one of THE most dangerous of all occupations. Then to the mills for ripping and planing. And finally being loaded on last of their kind sailing ships. You'll think you're watching a film from the 1800's. Amazing! A precious piece of history, expertly narrated by Tim Sample.
