TIMBER!

A logging camp on the Michigan-Wisconsin boarder in 1884 proves the testing ground for young Clyde Winton who survives a tough season as a ""cookie"" and decides on forest conservation as a career. Sure that he wants to be a lumberman, Clude is unwilling to go back to school and finally persuades his Uncle Harry to give him a job. When the work turns out to be that of cook's helper, a lot of the wind is taken out of the rather cocky boy's sails, but he hangs on, grimly determined to follow through. Then as other logging skills are learned, so is the power to decide wisely and Clyde returns to school so he can come back to the forest a wiser man.
