Summary:
Set in the Adirondacks of New York, the book told the sad story of the wilderness itself - to show, from the woodsman's viewpoint, the play of great forces which were tearing down his home and turning it into the flesh and bone of cities. Were it to cause any reader to value what remains of the forest above its market price and to do his part in checking the greed of the saws, it would be worth while.--Foreword.
