\u201cFrom the first logging operation to the closing of the last mill this book is so thorough, so comprehensive, so well organized, and so useful that it must take its place with the outstanding monographs of economic and western history.\u201d -Journal of Economic History The old-growth forests of Minnesota, at one time covering 70 percent of the state, played a major role in the development of the Upper Mississippi Valley. Telling the complete history of the white pine industry, Agnes Larson brings us back to a time when Minnesota\u2019s lumber business was thriving. Larson recounts the development of the region with a wealth of information, including the building of the railroads and bustling mill towns; the daily lives of lumberjacks, loggers, river-drivers, and jam-breakers; and the final devastation of the forests. \u201cAn excellent contribution to the regional history and historical geography of the Upper Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi Valley.\u201d -Geographical Review Agnes M. Larson (1892-1967) was professor of history at St. Olaf College. Bradley J. Gills is adjunct professor of history at Grand Valley State University.
