All in a Day's Work: Lumbering in New Brunswick

New Brunswick Museum

Imagine a river stretching away in front of you, one of many in New Brunswick. Before you on the shore you find a lumber camp, a place to sleep, food and occasional respite from a hard life in the woods. Ahead of you lies the work of cutting and hauling logs and rafting them downstream to the lumber mill, from where the sawn lumber will be shipped to market. The sounds of axes and saws and the cry of "Timberrrrr!" ring out around you.
