Summary
In the early 1900s, as Russia's imperial rule takes its toll on Finland, the three Koski siblings-- Ilmari, Matti, and their sister Aino-- are forced to flee to the United States. Not far from the majestic Columbia River, they settle among other Finns in a logging community in southern Washington, where the first harvesting of the colossal old-growth forests begets rapid development, and radical labour movements begin to catch fire. The brothers face the excitement and danger of pioneering this frontier wilderness--climbing and felling trees one-hundred metres high; Aino devotes herself to organising the industry's first unions. -- adapted from jacket
