Timber by Harold Titus.
An explanation of the impact of the novel "Timber," was found in the Traverse City Record-Eagle newspaper in an article published July 21, 2009, by Loraine Anderson:
"Sometimes it takes a gripping novel to change things."
"For Michigan's environmental ruin following the lumber era, that book was "Timber," written by Traverse City native son Harold Titus."
An account of my lumberman ancestor:
From the Saginaw [Mich] Evening News published October 26, 1887:
Lumber News -- October 26, 1887, Page 2
Deep River [Arenac Co.] - Oct. 26
Duncan Cameron, the old and well-known jobber of Roscommon, will lumber south of that place this winter, banking 3,000,000 feet of logs on the Michigan Central for the Ducey Lumber Company.
