I live on the banks of the Mississippi River in central Minnesota and my hometown was the site of the largest sawmill in the world in the 1890's. But before the mill could cut all those logs, they had to be sent downriver from the lumber camps spread throughout the Big Woods of Minnesota.
|Pine Tree Lumber Company in Little Falls, MN|
With each "drive" of logs, the camp would send along one or two river wannigans to travel with the men driving the logs.
Your Turn: Have you ever heard of a wannigan before? Would you like to ride in one?
