Life in a North Woods Lumber Camp
—Annie Stoltie, Editor Adirondack Life magazine
William J. O’Hern has enjoyed the Adirondacks for as long as he can remember. His outdoors experiences have been turned into a body of popular history books. Life in a North Woods Lumber Camp is his latest release to document stories about the history and region he loves so much.
—Neil Burdick, Adirondack Author and Editor About the book:
LOGGING AND LUMBERJACKS have long been important parts of America’s history, but little has been written about family life in an active lumber camp. In fact “family” and “lumber camp” were words that did not usually go together. The men who cut timber with axes and crosscut saws in remote forests usually left their families behind. Life in a North Woods Lumber Camp is a well-written story that focuses on delivering a character driven first-person rendition of America’s logging history that sparkles with hilarious adventures, wry descriptions of troubles and triumphs, and stories about the amusing camp characters from a personal-experience standpoint.
