Montana Timber

   In the book 'A River of Seasons" I talk about the timber industry in Montana a long time ago. Compared to Minnesota logging, those trees were mere matchsticks. The high altitude kept most things pretty small, even the chipmunks. Men still worked hard, and put up great piles of timber. Instead of floating the timber to the sawmills, they sawed the timber right near the camps.
   The lumberjacks were still a wide variety of Scandinavians, Finlander and Swedes. A lot of the men were new to the English language but in reality, all they needed was to be able to handle an ax or saw.     
   My book "River of Seasons" is for sale on as  well as peaceriverbooks.comThe Peace River Books blog is updated often. 
   I invite you to visit "A River of Seasons" blog site each day for a small look into what life was like a long time ago.

Good Reading,
