Steel rails and iron men. A history of logging railroads in northeastern Minnesota and Wisconsin and the iron men that built and ran them. This is basically a sequel to Cinders and Timber and is the story of the Duluth and Northeastern Railroad and the Wisconsin and Michigan Railroad that at one time had dreams of reaching the northeastern Minnesota logging boom by extending its line clear to Superior, Wisconsin. These logging roads had a direct bearing on American history and is the story of a great era in American history and a vital part of the forward thrust of industrial history. The Duluth and Northeastern Railroad still exists today and, along with the Wales branch of the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railroad, represents virtually the only surviving portion of the thousands of miles of logging roads that penetrated this area.
It is the story of men of iron that, in spite of bitter weather and many difficulties, laid the steel rails through the Great North Woods and through their daring courage and stamina set a great heritage in an important chapter of our American tradition.
