Lumbering Songs From the Northern Woods by Edith Fowke
Tunes translated by Norman Cazden.
The loggers in Ontario and adjoining areas of Quebec sang all kinds of popular songs, as well as inspiring original material. Edith Fowke's collection of sixty-five songs, recorded from former shanty-boys, is unique, a vivid picture of life in the north woods before mechanization. Lumbering Songs includes many songs not published elsewhere.
