It's Daylight in the Swamp - Life in the Lumberjack Camps

Bill Jamerson returns to the library (you may remember his program last spring on the Dollar-a-Day Boys). This time Bill will regale us with songs and stories about the men who made their living as northwoods lumberjacks.

Tall Tales, True Stories and foot tapping songs!

Journey back to the days of choppers and skidders, when men ate huge breakfasts before entering the woods for a long day of chopping and hauling logs. The only thing bigger than their appetites were the tall tales they told in the bunkhouse. Bill shares many of these tales along with true stories about the lives of walking bosses, river hogs, top loaders and teamsters.
