[I have just added a Logging Pages Index to help you find items of interest.  I hope this helps.]

Logging in the United States after the turn of the 20th Century is a blend of the Western Cowboy, Paul Bunyan, and Indiana Jones. Men, armed with huge cross-cut saws and double-bladed axes would leave home and hearth to struggle up mountains, wade swamps, brave rattlesnakes in the piney woods in order to harvest the trees that had been growing there for years.

A large part of the story of these loggers is the story of the trains that ran into the woods hauling the loggers in and the timber out.  Some of these trains and lumber routes exist today and haul tourist who are as awe-inspired as the loggers must have been with the rather "interesting" routes the trains took.
