Summary: Drawing from diary entries and work logs, official accounts, memoirs, personal reminiscences, and hundreds of photographs and reproductions, Jack Rooney provides a well illustrated history of the wild peninsula from the perspectives of the hearty individuals working on the land with the U.S. Forest Service from the late-nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth century.
