The early twentieth century setting doesn't play too important a part in this rather routine story of a lumber king's scion who couldn't make the grade at school, but finally did in a rough season with the logging camp in Maine. Expelled from his third prep school, obstreperous but un-snobbish Tom King goes at his grandfather's request, under a different name to the camp, and there in a series of drives, jams, dangerous moments and rescues- learns the value of friendship and decides to go to Cornell to study conservation. There's atmosphere but no real suspense.
