Interviews and oral histories divulge stories from a quieter, simpler, yet stirring time period, including first-hand accounts of smuggling during prohibition, river drivers brawling for fun, growing up without worry and without constant adult supervision, and of slop buckets spilling on tourists’ pies. These accounts are woven together amidst archived films and the exceptional backdrop of Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Co.'s photography.

-An illustration of the life, character and history of the turn-of-the-century Maine lumbermen & river drivers-
In the Blood employs stories and descriptions told by the men themselves, offering an accurate, detailed, and seemingly personal experience- as though you are sitting in a camp listening to the men. You will forget, at least fleetingly, you are watching on a screen and not sitting in a camp, driving down a river, or rolling on the yard. The illustration that In The Blood provides, sheds a new light on the character, history, and importance of these legendary Maine men. The experience is a striking virtual journey into the 19th century Maine woods.
