Turning Trees Into Dollars The British Columbia Coastal Lumber Industry, 1858-1913, Hak, Gordon H.
6 Hak, Gordon H. Turning Trees Into Dollars The British Columbia Coastal Lumber Industry, 1858-1913
Toronto University of Toronto Press 2000 0802083056 / 9780802083050 Softcover Near Fine 
A bright, solid book.; 8.82 X 5.98 X 0.79 inches; 239 pages; "The coastal forests of British Columbia are currently a source of controversy, with clashes between corporations, workers, environmentalists, Aboriginals, and politicians frequently in the national media. "Turning Trees into Dollars" sheds light on the historical complexities that lie behind the ongoing crisis. This is a comprehensive account of the formative years of the British Columbian forestry industry. Pinning the historical facts on the central concept of market capitalism, Gordon Hak traces the political, geographical, and technological developments that occurred as small, financially tentative logging operations grew into a major economic force. His narrative traverses the treacherous labour conditions, union activities, the use of immigrant labour, and the role of the First Nations, as well as the mill industry, tariffs and trade, the effects of the Canadian Pacific Railway, industrialization, entrepreneurialism, and the conservation movements that compose the rich terrain of B.C. forestry."

Whistle Punks & Widow-Makers  Tales of the BC Woods, Swanson, Robert &  Ken Drushka
7 Swanson, Robert & Ken Drushka Whistle Punks & Widow-Makers Tales of the BC Woods
Madeira Park, BC Harbour Publishing 1998 1550171771 / 9781550171778 Reprint Softcover Very Good+ 
Card covers show very light shelf wear. ; A bright, solid book,; B&W Photographs; Square 4to 9" - 11" tall; 160 pages; These tales from the golden age of logging in BC star all the legends of the woods. Not the founders of corporate dynasties, but the hookers, fallers, bull cooks, whistle punks and locie engineers who became real-life Paul Bunyans of the West Coast. "From sheer force of personality," writes Ken Drushka in his introduction, "these men rose above their workaday callings and became the subject of interminable bunkhouse bull sessions and barroom storytelling."Whistle Punks and Widow-Makers features twenty-six unforgettable stories about these near-mythical characters. They had names like Bull Sling Bill, Eight-Day Wilson, Daddy Lamb and Broomhandle Charlie, and their stories are told by Robert Swanson, who was an inveterate collector of bunkhouse ballads for more than half a century. With over 120 photos from the glory days of logging, many of them published here for the first time."
