   schema:description "1898. Ben Ward works with his Pa in a Minnesota logging camp, peeling potatoes and setting tables. Come spring, he signs up for the log drive with his friend Nevers. The head cook on the wanigan (the floating cook shack) is Pete Sardman, aka Old Sard, a cantankerous character with a greasy apron, an eye patch, one deaf ear, and plenty to say. As the team endures freezing weather, dangerous rapids, logjams, storms and floods, and a number of gripping tall tales, Ben also learns about logging on the river-- and a whole lot more about life."@en ;
