Publisher Comments:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

The giant redwood trees are one of Californias best known attractions. Thousands of tourists visit the Northern California groves each year. The story of the California redwood lumber industry also tells the stories of the men, the trains, and the land.

This book is dedicated to the pioneer lumbermen who succeeded in launching careers as mill men by overcoming the tremendous obstacle of moving the giant redwoods from the woods to the mill, by inventing equipment strong enough to handle the gigantic logs, and by finding suitable markets for their lumber throughout the Pacific area; and to Augustus William Ericson and the other early photographers who preserved the early history of logging in pictures.

It has unique qualities. No other wood can take its place where lasting qualities are required. The story of the California redwood lumber industry also tells the stories of the men, the trains, and the land. Historical photographs fill the pages.
