ABOUT THIS BOOK
Experience the adventures and tough life of a lumberjack in this newest addition to the Badger Biographies Series. Author John Zimm leads young readers on a journey through the lumbering heyday of Wisconsin’s North Woods as witnessed by lumberman John Nelligan, whose writings were the basis for John Nelligan: Wisconsin Lumberjack.
 
Born in 1852, Nelligan rose through the lumberjack ranks, starting out as a humble laborer and working his way up to foreman. He worked and lived in Maine, Pennsylvania, and even Canada before coming to Wisconsin in 1871. Learn what surviving and sawing wood for a living was like many years ago—from the story of one Wisconsin man who lived it!
