In 1927, in Kingdom County, Vermont, a large dam is to be built, however, Noel Lord, a logger and cedar-oil harvester, won't give up his lifetime lease on land that will be flooded. The dam company increases its offer of cash, but Noel refuses. He asks for a trade: a stand of pines for his lease. The company rejects that deal, but offers to make Noel a Ranger in a new park. Noel, meanwhile, talks with his Indian mate, the spirited Bangor, about their moving to Oregon and buying a saw mill. She wants him to take the company's money, but he's pig-headed. Is Noel headed for confrontation with the company and the law, or can Bangor prevail to affect a truce?Written by

Rip Torn's characterization is monumental. The great actor has never been better. Tantoo Cardinal is a perfect fit for him and when they are on camera together, this looks like a sure-fire classic. Then, Michael J. Fox shows up as evil personified, and throws every cliche in the book into a confused performance. The score is fine. But not good enough to save this turkey.
