A tale of imagination,
ingenuity and plain hard work, this film documents the odyssey of
approximately forty loggers who left their homes in the southern West
Virginia mountains to join the rural community of Northfield, Massachusetts,
for up to two years. Seeking little
more than an honest day’s pay, some would find wives as well as wages, and
all would experience the adventure of a lifetime.
