Lincoln, Nebraska University of Nebraska Press 1969 First Fine Very Good+ Jacket 
First Edition in clean original dust jacket. Very clean moss green cloth boards with bright gold lettering on spine. No bumping, fading or wear. Binding is tight and square, no cracking.

Retold from the Recollections of Louie Blanchard by Walker D. Wyman. Born in 1872 of a French-Canadian father and a Belgian mother, Louie Blanchard grew up on the Chippewa River (Wisconsin) and went to work in the pineries at the age of fourteen. By the time he retired to farm his homestead in the Cutover Country in 1912, he knew every inch of the river, had shot all the rapids down to Eau Claire, and had taken part in the biggest drives ever seen on the Chippewa. He became widely known in the region as a great storyteller, and his recollections--a potpourri of lumberjack lore, tall tales, and personal experiences--consititute an informal social history of the lumberjack frontier. 025508
