The story of lumberjacks in America, beginning with the first sawmill in Maine in 1631, and then progressing across the nation. "We meet the early lumberjacks and white-water men and we follow their fortunes through those roaring eras when the timber line moved west and south. We watch them fight the elements and each other, with equal courage in vigor. We listen to their bunkhouse tales and noisy songs. We see them meeting death bravely in the woods or on the rapids while they keep the wheels of industry turning."

Stewart Holbrook (1893-1964) was a logger, writer and historian whose work primarily focused on the Pacific Northwest.
