Product description

William Noyes (1862-1928) was an author and Assistant Professor, Department of Industrial Arts. His works include: Handwork in Wood (1910) and Wood and Forest (1928). "The rough and ready methods common in American logging operations are the result partly of a tradition of inexhaustible supply, partly of the fear of fire and the avoidance of taxes, partly of an eagerness to get rich quick. Most of the logging has been done on privately owned land or on shamelessly stolen public land, and the lumberman had no further interest in the forest than to lumber it expeditiously. "
