Let’s be honest – the National Film Board of Canada’s “Canada Vignettes” series made sure many of us were familiar with the Log Driver’s Waltz by John Weldon. It features a fun, catchy tune and gaves a positive spin on the life and times of a log driver.
Yet there is another great film, not often heard about or watched, available from the National Film Board of Canada. Also set to a lovely tune, Raymond Garceau’s “Log Drive” proves to be a must-watch short documentary for anyone interested in learning more about Canada’s logging and log drive history. If you can spare the 30 minutes, we guarantee it will be worth your time.
