This is the story of Dan Garland's winter working with a lumber crew in New Hampshire. He developed into a real lumberjack and had plenty of adventures, fighting a forest fire and tracking down the man who started it.
"A stirring tale, full of the atmosphere of the great northern forests."----Hartford Courant.
"This is the sort of book, rare today, which is equally enthralling to adults and children. Dan Garland is a very real and very human boy, and his adventures and experiences are completely absorbing. This really is a grand book and one it would not be possible to recommend too highly."----New York Herald Tribune.
