Young Bill goes up into the North woods to visit his Uncle Dan who has a thriving lumber business in Wisconsin. Bill is introduced to all the phases of logging, he leads the life of a regular lumberjack. In a short time he has so entered the swing of the existence that he earns his uncle's gratitude in the form of axe and peavey for saving a dog's life when he has slipped between the logs, and for keeping the wicked Sandy from gouging an eye. We presume that Mr. Tousey's illustrations will be as clear and illuminating as ever; it will be fine for boys of this age to understand this phase of American life. Good remedial reading with content for 9 and vocabulary for second grade.
