By Susan J.P. O’Hara & Alex Service. A follow-up to the first Mills of Humboldt County. The California coastal redwood was Humboldt County's economic mainstay from the 1850s onward. The first half of the 20th century saw technological changes in logging and milling. The industry began reforestation practices as early as 1907. This book explores Humboldt's early-20th century lumber industry in an era underrepresented in published logging history. Member Price: $19.79
