Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: In the Pacific Northwest and the Southeast the Hunt family symbolizes one thing-timber. Hundreds of thousands of acres of timber holdings, the foundation of the Hunt wealth, all controlled by one man, Marvin Hunt. The silver-maned man is the much-despised patriarch of the Hunt family, which consists of six sisters, each a beauty in their own right, and a baby brother with John Kennedy-like good looks and style. But Marvin, through his callous and unscrupulous past, has driven unseen predators, from outside and within the family, to a course of deception and death in an attempt to destroy the family and greedily seize the rights to the timber holdings for clear-cutting and a quick sale to Asian markets.TIMBER's cutting edge touches on controversial environmental decisions that took place in the Pacific Northwest during the timber crisis in the 1990's, and the dilemma now facing the Southeast with the explosion of chip mills and their devastation of the forests in the region.
