Natural Timber Country

  • 1972 ----- color ----- 53 min ----- 16mm
  • Presents the history of logging in the Big Woods of the Pacific Northwest, from the bull team era before the turn of the century, through the age of steam (shown in archival footage from as early as 1914, with the authentic sounds of steam locomotives and donkey engines), to the power logging of the present day. More importantly, it is a portrait of old-time loggers and their way of life as they recall the experiences of sharing their lives in a rough, regenerative landscape with huge old trees, now vanished.
