"The film documents a canoe trip taken by F.R. Crawley and three male friends. A written note at the beginning of the film is dated August 30, 1936, Maniwaki. The film includes men at a campfire, paddling the canoe, visiting a lumber camp (shots of men grappling logs, the mess tent, on the river in a boat, the hull of a boat which shattered in rapids). Also, shots of the group camped at 31-mile Lake, waking, washing at the river, swimming, eating, portaging Indian-style. In the evening, the men again set up camp, cook dinner and play poker."
