088776052X Signed, without inscription, by William Kurelek upon title page. Stated first printing. "As a young man Kurelek [1927-1977] signed up as a lumberjack in the Canadian bush. Here he has drawn on his memories and experiences and in detailed text and 25 stunning full-color paintings he describes a way of life that has virtually disappeared. Here we see how the lumberjack used his tools to fell trees, buck the wood, and pile it into cords. Each man was paid for his own work, so more often than not he worked alone. However, there was a hearty camaraderie when the men returned to camp in the evening, to eat their enormous meals and swap stories as they lay on their bunk beds warmed by the old iron stove." - dust jacket. Oblong 28.5 x 22cm. Book clean and unmarked with very light wear to publisher's tan cloth. Binding tight. Small faint sticker ghost to upper front corner of dust jacket which otherwise bears moderate wear and soiling and is now preserved in glossy new archival-grade Brodart. A special copy of this heartwarming piece of Canadiana written and illustrated by one of the nation's most beloved artists. Bibliographic reference: Bishop p.1019.
