Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Author Cowan has done a good job writing about the New England logging industry from its beginnings in the early 1600s to the industry as it is today. All aspects of logging is explained, from cutting the trees, driving them down the rivers, turning logs into lumber. and managing the forests. The first chapter explains how European settlers cleared the woods and used the logs for building materials. They were the first American lumbermen. Following each chapter is a two-page piece on "A Day in the Life of...." Chapter one talks about the life of "A Colonial Boy," while chapter two shows "A Day in the Life" of a mast logger. In Chapter three, Author Cowan writes about living in a logging camp. The reader finds out how difficult and dangerous life was for the lumberjacks and their families. There is a wealth of information in this book, including a recipe for Lumberjack Cookies, sidebars, black and white illustrations, photos and maps. Also included is a logging timeline, a glossary, bibliography and internet sites. 2003, Millbrook Press, Ages 10 up.
