God's Country is a 1946 comedy western film directed by Robert Emmett Tansey and starring Robert Lowery, Helen Gilbert and Buster Keaton. It is a low-budget B Western set in the contemporary American West.
Lee Preston, aka Leland Bruce (Lowery), kills a man in self-defense but flees to the redwood country when the law makes it a murder charge. There he meets Lynn O'Malley (Gilbert), the niece of "Sandy" McTavish (Farnum) who runs the trading post.
Lee learns this is good trapping country because the timber barons across the lake are ruthlessly cutting the trees and driving the animals across the river. The trappers appeal to him to take a petition to the Governor which would prohibit the timber people from coming to their side of the lake. At first, because he is a wanted man, he refuses, but does so later for the sake of the people, even though he knows it will lead to his arrest.
