Overview

Follow the history of logging as it unfolds across the United States, from the virgin forests of the east, to the towering redwoods of the West Coast. Historic photography, much of it beautifully hand tinted, captures images of the early woods, the woodsman, and the machines of this important industry. From its earliest days, logging was grueling work done in the isolation of virgin forests. Men worked and lived in rugged environments to provide the basic material with which to build a nation. This book illustrates their lives with over 350 historic postcard images taken from the early 1900s through the first half of the twentieth century. Stroll through stunning pictures of logging's history, from the massive trees and forests, axes, saws, lumber camps, donkey engines, and river floats to the oxen, horses, trains, trucks, and sawmills. See the massive machinery that transformed the lumber industry in the twentieth century.
