protection agency have to do with a land dispute?

Nobody wants to rule

on the legalities of who owns the land.

So they're trying to break the deadlock

on environmental grounds.

If we file a negative report,

the lumber company won't have much reason to proceed.

File a positive report, the Indians will probably

have to give way.

Another political football?

If you're looking for a job that's got permanent impact,

this is the one.

You're gonna set a precedent

that'll be very hard to break.

Vic, it's not my game. I'm strictly a rat bite

and gas leak man.

I can teach you

what you need to know.

I can give you the books

to take with you.

I'm in public health.

I'm a doctor.

And you know how to deal

with human beings.

The Indians are angry,

and so is the lumber company.

If we don't get full cooperation

from both of them,

We're gonna have trouble getting enough information

for a thorough report.

I got all

the tree experts I need.

I need someone who can--

Who can deal with people.

Come on, come on. It's two weeks

of your time.

Take Maggie along.

It'll be good for both of you to get away.

It's beautiful.

It's so peaceful.

I'd forgotten the world

could look like this.

Maybe that's one of our problems.

We can't see the forest for the trees.

It's a joke.

Here, get that.

- Goin' camping?

- Well, not exactly.

We're gonna be in a cabin.

We're gonna be outside.

- By a river.

- Hey, great.

It's gonna take three days

to walk down there.

Sounds hard.

Yeah, but that's the fun.

- What is that?

- Look!

That's the damnedest thing I've ever seen!

What do you think it's doing?

Beats me.

Mr. Vern.

Bethel Isely,

pitney lumber company.

How do you do?

- Have a nice flight?

- Indeed. My wife, maggie.

- Mr. Isely. - Welcome to the state
