The film documents a 4th of July contest at the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River in which dogs are timed for their speed in pulling a raccoon off a log and into the water.  The contest serves as context for Leslie County, Kentucky Judge George Wooten to discuss the recreational pastimes of mountain life, his personal retirement, tourism, and moonshine. This film's alternate title is "Judge Wooten and Coon-on-a-Log".  Subjects include social life and customs in the Appalachian region.
