In the early 1900s, Alaska's timber industry was booming. Rugged frontier lumberjacks toiled at work each day in one of North America's most grueling environments to harvest timber for our growing nation.

- Discover these fit, rugged men fought hard to take home the bragging rights of becoming the "Bull of the Woods."
