In words and music this 1957 film brings to the screen a great seasonal event of the Québec spruce forest--the log drive. A ballad singer comments musically on this annual spectacle. Water-borne, the vast aggregation of logs moves downstream, spurred by dynamite and sharp-tipped cant hooks, tossed and twirled by the boots of leaping men.
