In 1930's Depression-era North Carolina, the fate of the Pumberton timber empire hangs as it faces a buyout at a huge loss so the Smoky Mountains location can become a National Park. One of its two partners, George, has another reason to be nervous. The small town that depends on the Pumbertons for employment know that he has fathered an illegitimate child with one of their own. Additionally, George has invested heavily in timber in Brazil, where he hopes to eventually live. Meanwhile, during a society hunt and competition, he meets and quickly marries Serena, an assertive woman from a now deceased Colorado timber family. Once he brings Serena back home to North Carolina, things will never be he same.
