  • Short Summary

    Timber industry in Idaho - logs are floated downstream.

  • Description

    American logging in Idaho.

    Panning shot of large number of large logs piled up and floating in water. Logs are pushed from the piles into the river. They float downstream. A group of male workers move logs into place with special tools. Men stand knee deep in the river. One worker stands on a log and moves two others whilst they are all moving along the river.

    Logs come down a wooden chute filled with water into the river. "Rumour has it that boisterous spirits have been known to travel down on the lots... but not the same man twice!" Logs are propelled down the chute, they fly off and into the water at the bottom. Various shots of logs floating in the river.
