Born Into It – The Burks Family’s First 100 Years as Loggers
Born Into It is an hour-long audio documentary on one of West Virginia’s best-known and most admired logging families. Founded by patriarch Mose Burks a century ago, Burks Logging is now run by the fourth generation of the family. Hard work, stewardship of the land, and most of all the importance of family – these are the themes that have kept the enterprise going all these years. Interviews with all four generations of the family are featured in this story, including interviews done with Mose by his daughter Evalena more than 20 years ago, shortly before his death.
