Publisher's Summary

Searching for a fresh start, a young forester finds himself assigned to a new job scaling logs in a remote area of northwestern Montana. Scaling, a now archaic method of measuring the board foot content of trees cut into saw logs was the basis for logger pay and sawmill operation receipts. Unaware technology would soon eliminate his job; he is unprepared for the hard-working, idiosyncratic locals, who take on the task of educating their new co-worker. Struggling to learn his new job, he is educated into his new surroundings by the quirky inhabitants. This chronicle of changing times and personal growth follows the construction of a new hydroelectric dam and its influence on an isolated valley.
