Skookum Sal, Birling Gal: Heather Kellerhals Stewart

SKOOKUM SAL, BIRLING GAL: Sister of Skookum Sam and just as bold. With Sam's help and lots of practice, Sal becomes an expert at log birling or rolling. When nobody steps forward to challenge the big, burly champ at the Loggers' Sports Day, Sam volunteers his sister. Use your craft, Sis! he says. And she does just that.
