One family, thousands of acres and endless challenges to keeping their business afloat. Meet the Pelletiers -- nine brothers balancing family feuds with nature's harsh realities as they timber harvest in Maine's rural northwest backcountry. Pelletier Inc. is a classic American story, a logging business started half a century ago with one hundred dollars, one truck and one man: Gerald Pelletier. Now, his sons run the company, a vast timber harvesting enterprise, dozens of men, hundreds of machines working thousands of acres in what is literally a deadly business. Horrific weather, soaring fuel prices and a slumping economy have created a perfect storm that could wipe out a family. Throughout the year, the Pelletier brothers and their sons Rudy , Eldon, Danny, Larry, Gary, Wayne, Jeff, Jason and Matt - lead their men into the woods of northern Maine to claw out a living, running monster trucks along the legendary logging route known as the 'Golden Road,' a desolate throughway serving as sole passage between the furthest outskirts of rural civilization and a breathtaking unconquered wilderness that constitutes the single largest swath of unprotected forest north of the Mississippi.
