White Pine Industry in Minnesota By Agnes M. Larson

The history of the old-growth forests of Minnesota, which once covered 70 percent of the state, played a major role in the development of the Upper Mississippi Valley. Telling the complete story of the white pine industry, Larson brings us back to a time when Minnesota's lumber business was thriving. She recounts the development of the region with a wealth of information, including the building of the railroads and bustling mill towns; the daily lives of lumberjacks, loggers, river-drivers and jam-breakers and the final devastaion of the forests.
