    Rivers of Timber:
    An evening with Stub Borders,
    Piney River Tie Rafter,
    and friends


    "Alex Primm as Nathaniel "Stub" Borders"

    
    A performance with Alex Primm dressed  as  an
    old-time tie-hacker and rafter  with  slides,
    music, tools and oral history audio.
    
    Toward the end of the pioneer days in  Phelps
    County; circa: 1880,  thousands  of  men  and
    their families across the Ozarks were hacking
    ties used by the railroads. These  ties  were
    cut and floated down the streams  and  creeks
    of Phelps  county  and  into  larger  rivers.
    Sometimes the ties were moved all the way  to
    the town of Pacific in Franklin  County.  The
    tie rafters lived a hard and dangerous life.
    
    Alex Primm will give you an insight into  the
    life lived by these strong men and  women  of
    this time in our history.
    
    This  show  will   be   accompanied   by   the
    "Sometimes  Tuesday"  music  group  who  have
    knowledge of the  songs  used  in  this  time
    period; as well as a song about Stub Borders.
