A woman's experiences as a log scaler
by Lois Wood

A true account of a woman’s cherished career in forestry is graphically recalled from journals, photos and original artwork. The memoir is an account of her day-to-day log scaling duties. Her fundamental beliefs that companies would protect and care for employees were shattered following a violent assault. Afflicted with posttraumatic stress disorder, she shares the consequences of being a victim of workplace violence and ill treatment. Despite Health and Safety Regulations, injustices by employers are tragically commonplace. Her experiences show the stark reality behind a façade of safety policies.

The book was inspired by personal experiences and because journals were maintained over most of a cherished career.
