Redwood Classic by Ralph W. Andrews

Book Description

This book is one man's memorial to the magnificent natural redwood Sequoia trees in California which today number only a fraction of the groves of 125 years ago. Through outstanding photographs, Ralph Andrews presents 239 different views of redwood trees three thousand years old on average at various stages of use. Straight, elegant trees are so wide 20 men touching fingers-to-fingers can stand around the trunk. These trees were used to build lumbering empires, and they kept thousands employed. Many of the lumbermen themselves are quoted in memories of their work on the old trees--hardships, inventions, earthquakes and fires, sawmills, logging camps and shipping are remembered.

Timber by Ralph W. Andrews Timber, Paperback (January 1999)

The photos in this absorbing book will instantly transport the reader into the former world of logging. Here was the greatest stand of Douglas fir timber in existence and here was labor for the Poles, Finns, Swedes, and Norskies lured out of the Midwest to make the lumber that helped build the West Coast cities.
