Timberjack Tall Tales Sep 17, 2003
Owing much to the legacy of Scandanavian sagas, SEARCHING FOR THE EVERGREEN MAN is a portrait of a species of men who walked & talked their way West across the great prairies to the mountains & forests of Oregon Territory where timberbeasts & woodland spirits flit from shadow to shadow, as mere mortals hew their way into the cathedrals of Firs & Pines, where everything is bigger, taller, stronger, longer.
If you have ever dreamed of life at the edge of civilization, around a campfire, deep, deep beneath the forested canopy; if you have ever been entranced by the Lumberjack Championships on Outdoor Living Network (OLN) tv; if you have ever mourned the demise of an immense natural wonder, then Dean Barton's SEARCHING FOR THE EVERGREEN MAN will fill you with the sights & sounds, the language & the life of the old-time loggers.
Living among the tall trees, I can vouch for Dean Barton's authenticity. His skill, in listening & translating the stories he has heard all his life, makes SEARCHING FOR THE EVERGREEN MAN mesmerizing.
