Description
Musicwood is an adventure-filled journey to remote, beautiful and foreboding Southeast Alaska. Delving into the cultural and economic history of the area, Musicwood begins with a startling revelation: Native Americans are devastating their own homeland, logging enormous tracts of land with no concern for the impact.

Into this scenario comes an unusual group of guitar-makers — CEO's of the most famous guitar companies on the planet — on a mission: to negotiate with the Native Americans and change the way this forest is logged before it's too late for acoustic guitars. But these Native loggers are determined not to change.

If they don't, and the logging continues unabated, the forest will run out of acoustic-guitar quality Spruce in about five years. The guitar as we know it will be no more.

Enter Greenpeace, with an agenda that pours gasoline on this already blazing fire. They are out to save this forest at all costs, but are they willing to make deals with their nemeses to get what they want?

Musicwood is a culture clash of staggering proportions. Native American loggers, white CEO's, and a radical environmental group, all battling over a forest that is the last of its kind on the planet. Musicwood upends our simplistic view of indigenous peoples and the past, with a story where it's often impossible to tell the good guys from the bad
