The publisher stumbled onto a treasure in this collection of photographs of early logging in America. Mike Monte's enthusiasm shines through his commentary on the history of logging. He's interested in the loggers, their trees, their lifestyle, their machinery, their locales, their women, in short, in everything associated with the logging industry in the United States more than a century ago. These pictures will appeal to those who love to look at photos of America's dramatic history in the nineteenth century. I keep wondering what it would be like to eat in the logging tent at the table with these guys, or sleep on a cot next to a fellow still wearing his hobnail boots--or hang out the laundry in a couple feet of snow.
