Lumberjack Sky Pilot DVD

  • $24.95


In the days before computers and sophisticated machinery took over the logging industry, men braved hazardous conditions in the northern woods to satisfy America's growing need for lumber. 

"Lumberjack Sky Pilot" is an historic and nostalgic portrayal of the men who were proud to call themselves lumberjacks, men who made their living with a buck saw and a back of steel. The video, assembled from 16 mm home films, preserves a fascinating but little known piece of American history. Reverend Frank Reed, and itinerant preacher or "sky pilot", narrates films he shot while visiting Adirondack lumber camps in the 1930's and 1940's.
