By P. Johnson on August 28, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read this book about fifteen years ago. I think it is unequivocally one of the most straight forward accounts of history you can get your hands on. It is easy to read and some of the accounts might blow your mind. For example, the big 4th of July celebrations held in Muskegon on the river flats when 500 prostitutes were brought in from Milwaukee and Grand Rapids. The explanation of what forced the lumber barons to become so charitable in their building of libraries and schools with their names attached is very interesting reading. You can almost see that coming again with the way the Financial Barons are ripping our American economy today.

Get a copy of the book. You will be happy you did.

This is one of the most clearly honest reports on the lumber era in America. It is well written. You'll have trouble putting it down. I have read a lot of history books by the great historians; but, this one takes the cake. Believe me. The author worked for the Bay City Times a local paper in Bay City, Michigan. He opens the eyes of your imagination and paints a story you'll never forget.

I heartily recommend it to everyone. Read about the lumber barons getting themselves elected to the state legislatures and writing laws that gave them the power to rob the people of Michigan blind. Learn why Mr. Hackley of Muskegon did so much charity. Read about the 4th of July celebration in Muskegon where 500 prostitutes were brought in from Grand Rapids and Milwaukee to service the lumber jacks who were given advances on their pay for the celebration. Know why a street that had back to back taverns in Muskegon was named Pine Street. It's still there. I can't say enough to promote this book.

I am very pleased with the book and the ease in ordering. My husband has been looking for this book since his
college professor mentioned it in 1963, so when it arrived he was very pleased. I would definitely shop here again.

Powerfully written story of the logging of the northern tier of American first-growth timber. This book is a working-man's theme written as literature.
