Description

Set in the fictional logging community of Rainy Mountain somewhere east of Prince George, Paper Trees recalls the adventures of northern logging in the 1950s and early 1960s. It is a period of change in the woods - the small independent logging companies and sawmills were trying to hold their own against the forestry giants.

Desperation drives the protagonist Byron Smith to work at Rainy Mountain. Loyalty, intrigue and a captivating woman keep him there. The once-prosperous Rainy Mountain is threatened by the new 'use or lose' forestry quota system. Fear of losing the only home that this family has ever known wreaks havoc and Byron is forced to step in. He discovers much more than ways to recover economically - he learns of the mysterious disappearance of a young girl. Everyone becomes a suspect as the close-knit community seeks justice for such a horrifying crime. A page-turning story of hardship, mystery and adventure, with a captivating love triangle.
