For more than a generation, lumbering marked the path and set the pace in Wisconsin's growth from a frontier community into the great commonwealth it had become by the turn of the century. Empire in Pine is a comprehensive study of that industry, whose output soared from a few thousand board feet in 1830 to the stupendous total of four billion board feet by the peak year of 1892, but it is at the same time a highly readable account of a fascinating era in Wisconsin history. It won the David Clark Everest prize in Wisconsin Economic History.
