I had to write a review of this book as the only other review listed gives it 1 star, although says its a "good book". This is a great book, and probably one of the best books about the logging industry in Northern New England (VT, NH and ME). It is written mostly as an anecdotal account of certain men who gained notoriety in logging, the types of jobs men would have in the camps, and how the process occurred -- in fact the writing is so informal it is as if you are having these old stories told to you by an old man in plaid, while drinking whiskey in front of a wood stove, including old-fashioned and sometimes off color comments. The book is not chronological, but the chapters are divided by topic (Camp Cooks, River Drivers, Teamsters, etc). There are some excellent photos of loggers, too. If you live in northern New England and are interested in the extensive logging history that shaped our landscape and our economy, read this book.
