Story Summary

In a wonderful parable for today's world, Paul Bunyan falls asleep for 200 years after clear-cutting a giant northern forest only to wake in a warmer, climate altered world. He quickly learns the technique of sustainable cutting and signs up for timber detail on distant colonized planets. Sort of a Paul Bunyan meets Rip Van Winkle meets Isaac Asimov.
