Description


A true account of a working lifetime spent in the woods of coastal BC. Filled with life and death stories, and larger-than-life characters. Loggers of the B.C. Coast is a blend of history and autobiography set against the primitive background of post-war logging camps and populated by a bygone breed of crude, philosophical, charming, and inveterately fascinating men. The author came to British Columbia in 1951 to shore up his family's war-blasted fortunes, and to follow a childhood dream. His memories of forty-one years in the woods are crisp and clear, the descriptions of death and adversity taut and visceral. At the heart of the book are the numerous camp-dwellers themselves. Men with names like Sidewinder, Slippery, Ha Ha Harry and Whispering Swede leap out from every page and demand to be remembered. For those who enjoy language, the glossary of logging terms alone is worth the price of admission.
