She would work hard to make sure that she'd never end up on a reservation. “We
will return to our home, and become great women someday in this valley.” Shasa

lead system of yarding logs had slowly been replaced with the high lead method.
A climber would climb up a tall, sturdy tree, cutting its limbs on the way up. At
about three-quarters of the way up, he would top the tree. Thus the tree would
