The W. T. Carter Lumber Company founded the community of Camp Ruby in southeast Polk County, Texas, in 1925 to house the workers it employed to harvest the timber in the Big Thicket, as the surrounding tracks of forest were called. Before these very same forests overgrew and eventually concealed almost every vestige of the community's former existence, Camp Ruby had for more than 20 years been the cherished home of its hard-working residents. This is the story of their family and working lives as recalled by those former residents in conversations with the author. Included is a roster of the camp's families as well as a gallery of personal photographs. Indexed.
