Cover: The “Paul Bunyon” Boaks: Five Generations in the Logging Woods

Cover photo: Ted “Paul Bunyan” Boak (at left on log) working as Side Rod on Mason County Logging Company’s rail-mounted Clyde slackline yarder #2. The versatile machine could load timber close to the track, and load logs with either two tongs or single tongs as a heelboom. Fred Scott is the yarder engineer, Ray “Hungry” Woods stands on the yarder footboard, and Wallace Christian is in the middle on log.
