Logging and Lumberjacks have long been important parts of America’s history, but little has been written about family life in an active lumber camp. In fact ‘family’ and ‘lumber camp’ were words that did not usually go together. The men who cut timber with axes and crosscut saws in remote forests usually left their families behind.
Life in a North Woods Lumber Camp is a well-written story that focuses on delivering a character-driven first-person rendition of America’s logging history that sparkles with hilarious adventure, wry descriptions of troubles and triumphs, and stories about the amusing camp characters from a personal-experience standpoint.
