Taken from Chapter 12: A place of action A sawmill was an active, noisy place. Everyone had a job to do. If a job was not done correctly, a person could be crushed by a log or have a hand cut off by the saw. Pike men poled logs toward the mill ramp. Persons at the top of the ramp directed the logs toward the saw carriage. Other persons lifted the heavy logs onto the saw carriage. Then other sawyers on the carriage pulled levers that moved the carriage toward the whirring saw. With a roar the saw ripped into the wood. Sawdust flew through the air, choking the sawyers on the saw carriage. The roar of the saw hurt their ears.Review:
