Description
Peter Samchek stands atop pulp logs at the river's edge of an unknown location in Northwestern Ontario. Logs were usually cut during the late fall and winter months, and then hauled over snow roads to the edges of rivers and lakes. In the spring, when the ice was gone, logs would be pushed into the water and floated to sawmills.
