Holy Old Mackinaw is the rough and lusty story of the American lumberjack at work and play, from Maine to Oregon. Holbrook captures the life and color of a vanished American scene in this complete history of logging in the northwest.

For nearly three hundred years the logger was a real pioneer who ranged through the forests of many states, steel calks in his boots and ax in his fist, a plug of chewing handy, who emerged at intervals into the towns to call on soft ladies and drink hard liquor.

This book is an excellent addition to your field lumberman's history collection or home library.


This hardcover book is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears.
