    Program notes by Edith Fowke, bibliography, and song lyrics (12 p. : ill.) inserted in container.
    Edith Fowke, a prominent Canadian folk song authority, recorded men who decades earlier had ventured into the North Woods of Ontario during the winter as lumbermen - also known as shanty boys, or lumberjacks - enduring both cold and substantial danger. As many lumbermen lost their lives plying their trade, it is not surprising that a substantial number of their songs memorialized their fallen comrades. But other songs were cheerful or simply descriptive, relating everyday circumstances of life in the lumber camps, the work, or leisure time in town. Usually, they sang their songs as unaccompanied solos, in their shanties, after the work for the day was done. Liner notes describe the circumstances of Edith Fowkes' recording efforts, provide general background information, and discuss the origin of each song along with its lyrics.
