Whats Dat?
« on: January 22, 2007, 01:56:29 PM »
 ;D

Were going to do this again since the first venture has been doing so well.  The first one to guess (or at least come close enough in my opinion) what this registered members only topic area is about gets the prize. :) ;D

 The prize is my extra copy of one of my prized old historical books on logging.  This one is called "North of Saginaw Bay" by E. J. Peterson

     
     This is the saga of a fabulous era in
Michigan's past, remembered now only in
history and legend, when the lumberjack
and timber-cruiser roamed the great pine
and hardwood forests of the state.

     From this colorful and heroic period
there have come down to us many tales,
strange and mysterious. but none more
exciting and intriguing then the stories
of the famous Struthers case, the mystery
of the white papoose, the legend of the
one-legged trapper of the Big Bear Swamp,
and of Old Tillie and her whelps.

     In North of Saginaw Bay, E. J. (Pete)
Peterson, himself an oldtime lumberman
and timber-cruiser, retells and relives for
the reader those days when Michigan's
now famous resort and vacationland re-
sounded to the ring of the lumberman's axe
and the crash of falling timber. In this
story of young Clay Woods and his des-
perate uphill battle for justice, the reader
will form a intimate acquaintance with
the rugged pioneers, their friends among
the Indians, like Chief Green-sky, and the
many other characters who made frontier
life colorful, such as the gnarled little
preacher who become one of the heroes of
the tale.

     The Michigan lumberman has been im-
mortalized in the National Lumberman's
Monument on the site of the High Roll-
ways, overlooking the Au Sable River,
twelve miles upriver from its mouth at
Oscoda. The photo of this monument, one
of the State's tourist attractions appears
on the front of this jacket through cour-
tesy of Harvery L. Watson, photographer,
East Tawas.

Is the prize a hint?

Could this be a topic area to cover either logging history or to discuss publications about logging and its history?

If that is two guesses and 2 are not allowed just pick the one that is the closest.

On second thought it may be an area where we can throw out all our whazzits.

Its called giddiup 2 because thefirst time I called it Giddiup and it was about woodworking. Giddiup is no clue, but the moderators chosen, well, they probably have no clue either. :D

Kcwoodbutcher, is just a little to far off for me to give it to him. Its kinda like looking outside my window, seeing the 14 inches of snow we have on the ground right now and saying there is a snow ball out there. :)

i thought about alt fuels too.
Maybe it is a Global Warming section and Al Gore is going to be the Moderator of Honor.

Maybe it's an environmental section.
