Scope and Contents

This collection consists of two poems and a unpublished novel, Woodman's Trail, written by Frank Pyatt. Both the poems and the novel describe Michigan lumbering in the pine era. Pyatt wrote several fictional accounts of Michigan lumbering, largely because he was dissatisfied with historical accounts.
