Tales of Big Joe Mufferaw, the legendary and half-mythical roughest, toughest of Canadian lumberjacks have traveled across eastern Canada and the North-East USA for almost two centuries. This little book examines what the lumber industry of the days of the "Big Timber" in the Ottawa Valley and along the St. Lawrence River was really like between 1830 and 1860. We meet and learn some of the real stories that lie behind the "Tall Tales" of the real life "King of the Lumberjacks", Joseph Montferrand of Montreal.
