Men of the Forests. The tough work of Russian lumberjacks in the woods of Archangelsk Region

He learns about their Spartan lifestyle and finds out the basics of their profession: from cutting trees with a chainsaw to driving a multimillion-euro machine; from making the logs into rafts to transporting them down the river to the factories where they will be turned into paper.
