0919654444 225 pages including index and bibliography. The story of Gyppos and Giants, of early pioneers who hated big trees because they were in the way of future food crops. It is the story of the rape of our forests by old "cut and get out" companies, of tugboats and boom men, and labor organizers and scabs. Captures the growth of British Columbia's primary industry, recreating the lore of the old woods, the humour of the loggers' poems and yarns, as well as the adventure of the legendary breed of he-men who toiled as hard as their own horses and oxen. Wonderfully illustrated with archival black and white photographs from cover to cover. Usual library markings. Average wear. Binding intact.
