|An unprecedented rape of Mother Nature from the 1880s to the 1940s completely changed the wooded landscape in the northern Great Lakes region of America as well as the society and ecology for evermore. In this time of empire building, logging towns grew like weeds around sawmills and often died when the last tree was cut. The people living there called it "cut and run". This book presents true-life photographic images of the loggers & the people they touched. 128 pages, 168 b&w pictures. s/b.
