As David comes to adulthood, enlightened and enlivened at various points by an unforgettable triumvirate of intoxicating women, he realizes he must come to terms with his forefathers' rapacious destruction of the wood of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, as well as the working people who made their wealth possible. With over 30 years of searching for the truth of what his family has done and trying to make amends, David looks close at the root of his father's evil, and threatens, like Icarus, to destroy himself.
