Description:

The twentieth-century industry of logging by steam reaches its highest development in the big tree country of western America. The logs are dragged out of the forest and to the end of the "skid road," where they are loaded on railroad trucks by means of powerful wire rope cableways. The cables are nearly an inch thick and one thousand or more feet in length, and they wind on drums operated by powerful engines, which drag the logs over the roughest kind of a road at surprising speed.
