some of these are job designations.
choker is the chain that pulls the log up and the choker setter is a very dangerous job
bunkhouse is where the lumberjacks sleep
they used to eat huge meals on the job. a steam donkey was a little train that dragged logs.
fiume was the water races built to carry logs down. used in mendicino ca.
these were seasonal and transigient jobs.
i had a book from the children's section in Or where a college boy worked as a lumberjack and drew pictures. also lois lenski wrote a book, about my landlord and his family, loggers in or. gyppo loggers were gypsys who didn't always have permits.
