This book traces the development of the methods and machines used to harvest the forests of Western Australia over the last 150 years, from first settlement to the present day, from horse and steam power to modern mechanical harvesters.
It describes the bush workings and logging operations that underpinned WA's sawmilling industry - once the third largest industry in the state behind wheat and wool.
It is also a tribute to the skill and innovation of the bushmen and engineers who brought about the changes and who designed and built those weird and wonderful machines that were unique to the industry and to this part of the world.
More than one hundred photographs are included.
