Down the Hill is Roy Stier’s personal account of the evolution of early logging in the misty-green mountains of Washington.
It is a work that gives detail, character, and historical substance to the logging industry. The St. Paul & Tacoma Lumber Company is a true microcosm for a brash, new Western adventure which became the sprawling 20th century timber industry.
Filled with incredible historical photos, charming anecdotes, and absorbing narratives of the Pacific Northwest, Down the Hill is a unique, insider’s perspective of this adventurous industry.
