Redwood Classic, Paperback / softback Book

Redwood Classic Paperback / softback

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.
