Loggers unload a boat of Greenheart and purpleheart timber at Rockstone landing, guyana.  They had to bail the boat all night to keep it afloat.  These amerindians are called "pokenockers" because they poke around here, knock around there trying to make a little bit of money.  They travel the trails that trace the interior of Guyana all the way to the "back door" of Brazil.
