INTRODUCTION
In Deep Woods Frontier, Theodore J. Karamanski examines the interplay between men and technology in the lumbering of Michigan's rugged Upper Peninsula.
Three distinct periods emerged as the industry evolved. The pine era was a rough pioneering time when trees were felled by axe and floated to ports where logs were loaded on schooners for shipment to large cities. When the bulk of the pine forests had been cut, other entrepreneurs saw opportunity in the unexploited stands of maple and birch and harnessed the railroad to transport logs. Finally, in the pulpwood era, "weed trees," despised by previous loggers, are cut by chain saw, and moved by skidder and truck.
Narrating the history of Michigan's forest industry, Karamanski provides a dynamic study of an important part of the Upper Peninsula's economy.
A complete pictorial history of the little-known but fascinating Key System, a series of passenger lines serving Oakland, nearby cities, and across the bay into San Francisco.

Starting prior to the opening of the Bay Bridge, and covering the entire period through closure in the 1950s, this volume contains many never-before-published photographs, packed with items of interest.

All lines forming the Key System are covered, with route maps and details of operations, plus the Shipyard Railway, the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition trains, maintenance cars, and other topics.

Also contains a full reprint of 40-page bulletin published by the General Railway Signal Company in 1939: Railway Signaling on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
