254 pages including glossary. Based upon interviews with Arne Johnson, Hjalmar Bergren, John McCuish, George Grafton, Edna Brown, and others who helped organize a woodworker's union in British Columbia. This work was begun in 1957 with the intent of recording a history of the woodworker's union in the Lake Cowichan area, of which so many oft-repeated tales have been heard. Intended to embrace only the camps and mills in the area, it grew to be a larger story, until the author was faced with a mountain of data on paper ad tape, and the necessity to draw a line. For this reason, the story is based on the Cowichan region, appropriately enough, since it was one of the vital areas in the establishment of the woodworker's union. Small address label inside front cover else unmarked. A little above average wear. Binding aging but remains intact. Remains a decent copy.
