The photographs in this absorbing book will instantly transport the reader into the former world of logging in the forests of the Pacific Northwest – the ‘Big Woods’. There are many nostalgic scenes showing high climbers, fallers balanced on high springboards, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroads to flumes, rivers and salt water, early donkey engines, railroads on steep grades, logging camps as well as devastating fires. Andrews’ style of writing is graphic and spirited with a strong emphasis on human interest.
