Adirondack Timber Cruising
By William J. O'Hern
Adirondack Timber Cruising takes the reader on a journey that visits the development of timber cruising, logging, forestry, and out relationship to our physical environment. It shows that conservation is concerned with our spiritual, mental, and material welfare. It tells us it is not enough to use forest resources wisely, with the idea that forestry is an end in itself; the end is greater than human happiness, and forestry is merely a means to that end.
The bonus of vintage photographs creates a two-in-one book, with a wide array of eyewitness pictures accompanying the logging and lumberjack business stories. (491 photographs)
