Inhaltsangabe: Relates the history of railroad activity during that robust era that witnessed the most intense timber harvest ever undertaken in the Adirondacks.
The period of 1890-1950 marked the romantic era of steam power as the rails reached deep into the old growth of the Adirondack woods to harvest the timber crop.
In this volume, not only does William Gove provide an in-depth history of railroad activity in the Adirondacks - there were twenty-four rails in all - he also describes the logging methods used, the role of railroads in the logging industry, and the influence of the railroads on the condition of the Adirondack forest today. In addition, he addresses the political and economic forces determining the location and viability of logging railroads, villages, and the forest industry.
Über den Autor: William Gove has had a career in forestry in both private industry and state government in Vermont. He is the author of Sky Route to the Quarries, J. E. Henry's Logging Ralroads, and Log Drives in the Connecticut River.
