Review:

"Hawes-Davis draws attention to the intimate connections between land ownership, industry and political power in Maine. He skillfully weaves together the impressions of loggers, environmentalists, state land managers, industry representatives and others, illuminating a conflict which is shaping the future of Maine's northwoods" -- Northern Forest Forum, Winter 1996

"Hawes-Davis shows mechanical tree harvesters leveling stands of trees, dramatic aerial footage comparing the view from the air of mature forests and open clearcuts. The forest shots are interspersed with interviews of Maine loggers, foresters, sportsmen and northern Maine residents, most of whom oppose clearcutting, countered by comments from state and timber industry officials who defended the practice." -- Kennebec Journal, September 5, 1996

"The Maine Woods are falling fast to the paper companies, and the surreal shots of borderless devastation are made more creepy by Ned Mudd's eerie music....The impression of ruin, lies and the betrayed confusion of the people carries over into the music, setting the tone for The Paper Colony. -- Earth First! Journal, September/October 1996
