The names of those lumber barons are part of Michigan’s story: David Whitney, Arthur Hill, Henry Sage, William Atwood, Charles Hackley and Henry Crapo. Lumber was “green gold”, worth more than the gold from California’s Gold Rush. The way of life for the lumberjacks or shanty boys as they called themselves was unique to them. Everything at the lumber camp had a name: widow-maker, Gabriel’s horn, river hogs, swampers, skidders, big wheel, log mark, and the most important person, cookee (cook.)
